Travel Advice

Stay close to the Hobart waterfront and central St Helens to be near other orienteers and for easy access to everything (tourist highlights, shops, restaurants, cafes, pool, medical services, OA functions and the orienteering).  For information on tourist destinations and self drive itineraries visit the Discover Tasmania website.

A campervan or motorhome from our major sponsor AutoRent-Hertz might be an appealing, fun and and economical way to explore Tasmania.  They also offer car and SUV rentals.  All at special rates for orienteers.  Find out more.
