The Spirit of Tasmania Apr 19, 2004
There are two ways on how to get to Tasmania. First option is to take the plane or to take the ship from Melbourne to Devonport Tasmania.

It takes about half a day to get to Tasmania. The crew told me that it once was a party ship. Years ago, people went to Tasmania and took the ship back just to party all night long. But since faster ships are used, people stopped partying. Now it’s quite boring and if you don’t have a cabin or a place to sleep its not going to be very relaxing.

Its nice to leave Port Philip with this huge ship, but afterwarts nothing happens, nothing to see until you reach Tasmania.

The fares are quite expensive if you are travelling with your car it might be cheaper when you book a flight to Tasmania and rent a car there.

I can remember like it was yesterday when we where driving down from Craddle moutain hoping to reach the ship in time,... and then there was this unfriendly guy at petrol station which didnt have us any patrol at 17:56. Well was fun.....

Current rates:

Between 140 and 190 AUD per Person and about 60 AUDs for the car.
