Spirit of Tasmania: huge winter sale!

Winter just got hotter with 45%* off seats and cabins on Spirit of Tasmania!

Travellers can embrace the allure of sea travel - relaxing, stress-free and a memorable way to begin their holiday. The journey begins by driving on board, it’s that simple. No luggage restrictions means travellers can pack their skis, camping gear and blankets for an adventure where half the fun is getting there.

Ocean View Recliners start from just $82* per person each way or upgrade to a cabin from $57* extra per person each way (twin share). Offer applies to travel between 16 May and 13 September 2009.

“The off–peak winter season is the best time to travel around the state, it also has the advantage of being particularly uncrowded which makes it so easy to unwind,” said Charles Griplas, CEO of Spirit of Tasmania.

Passengers can get cosy in the on board cinema which screens two complimentary movies during each voyage or enjoy a drink in an array of bars with spectacular views. Dining options include an a la carte restaurant serving fresh Tasmanian produce or a buffet eatery with satisfying cuisines for the whole family.

Mainlanders heading south will adore Tassie for its calm, clear and crisp days. Switch to a world of natural wilderness with extensive beautiful waterways, boutique farms and delicious food and wine. The southern region of the island boasts the Huon Trail drive in the Huon Valley. Enjoy the peaceful drive through quiet country roads alongside gorgeous scenery offering something different around every corner. Take the Tahune Airwalk which rises 48 metres above the ground and experience walking among treetops with a bird’s eye view of the world above the forest floor. The area is also well known for four wheel driving, bushwalking and fishing – perfect activities for winter.

Don’t forget to rug up and join the celebrations of the Antarctic mid-winter festival held from 19 - 28 June. With ten days of exhibitions, performances, tours and social events including entertainment, such as ‘The Longest Night Film Festival’ and ‘The Flight of the Snow Petrels Children's Parade’, this unique festival is enjoyable for all ages.

“45%* off is a great saving and an even better reason to book a getaway to such a stunning part of Australia,” said Mr Charles Griplas.
