Tasmania is as easy place to explore if you are travelling
with a pack on your back. Distances are quite short,
economical bus transport covers most of Tassie's main points
of interest, and the local Tasmaian population will go
out of their way to help wherever possible.
Tasmania's backpacker lodges
and youth hostels are great places to meet other travellers
and backpackers to share stories and travel ideas.
Accommodation types vary from town to town. Some
towns offer dormitory rooms whilst others provide a choice
of dormitory, double, twin, bunkhouses and single rooms.
In most cases, bathroom and kitchen facilities are shared
and you will find communal dining, kitchen and living
areas with most places also offering laundry
