Sail Away and Save Save Save!

Tasmania, our most southern state is an island paradise waiting for all to explore and for a short time only, adults can travel at kids’ prices on Spirit of Tasmania. Ocean View Recliners start from just AUD$109* per person each way or upgrade to a cabin from AUD$28* extra per person, twin share.

This special offer is perfect for those who want to enjoy a getaway for a great saving. Offer is valid for travel between 2 May and 13 September 2009 and must be booked by 16 May 2009.

Sailings depart Melbourne at 8pm and arrive into Devonport the following day at 7am. Travelling by sea means there are no luggage restrictions and no long delays. What’s more, taking your car is so easy and the best way to tour the apple isle at a relaxed pace.

Tasmania is breathtaking in the autumn and winter months with lush green wilderness, world-class vineyards and spectacular coastlines. Its colonial charm and rich diversity of culture, arts, gourmet cuisine and attractions means there is something for everyone.

“The best part about visiting Tasmania is all the affordable home grown produce that people can take back with them to share with their family and friends.

“Tasmanian oysters, cheese, chocolate, raspberries and wine are just some of the mouth watering treats the state has to offer,” said Mr Charles Griplas, CEO, Spirit of Tasmania.

Bargain hunters will adore soaking up the music, colour and flavours of Salamanca Market held in Hobart, every Saturday of the year. Browse through stalls filled with friendly people who make or grow what they sell.

Horticultural enthusiasts must embrace ‘Blooming Tasmania’, a guide to floral shows, festivals and garden open days spread throughout the state. Explore unique gardens and botanical delights until the end of the autumn season in May or travel in spring to see the regions in full bloom.

Food lovers can enjoy Tasmania’s premier culinary event ‘Tastings at the Top’ held at Cradle Mountain Lodge, Cradle Mountain. The three day festival held in June is a gourmet extravaganza rated among the country’s best food and wine experiences. Boutique winemakers, beer brewers and specialist growers from various regions in Tasmanian come together to celebrate the very best in Tasmanian produce.

“Spirit of Tasmania is the perfect way to start your next Tasmanian journey, especially with our new adults at kids’ prices sale.
“Take advantage of this great saving and book now to avoid missing out,” said Mr Charles Griplas.
