Maps of Tasmania

RACTTasTouringmapAn excellent road map of Tasmania is sold by all tourist bureaus.

The RAC Touring Map for the state costs just A$5.50 and outlines all the roads, from main routes to unpaved detours at a scale of 1:500 000. Dots denoting settlements or towns also vary in size, to indicate population and services available.

Different symbols mark caravan parks, serviced and unserviced campsites, national parks, state forests, tourist bureaus and major attractions. It also features a distance chart and detailed maps of major cities and towns.

We found the map to be highly accurate. There are also some free maps available but these are not as detailed. It’s worth spending a few dollars for the RACT map.

Cycle touring brochure from TasmaniaIn addition, you’ll want to pick up the free Cycle Touring brochure.

Download it online before you go and then pick up a hard copy at a tourist bureau once you get there. It gives a good overall guide to cycling in Tassie, with a few of the key sights and considerations for cyclists outlined. We really appreciated that someone took the time to produce this leaflet just for people on pushies!

    I would consider going for the 1:250000 finer grained maps. There are 4 that cover the whole state. They’re available in most Service Tasmania government shops or Tourist Info. places that dot the island. They allow you to vary the route and see more features, especially if you don’t mind dirt roads.

    I have to show my respect for your kindness for those people who should have help on the question. Your very own commitment to passing the message all over was surprisingly productive and has all the time enabled individuals much like me to arrive at their endeavors. Your own informative guidelines can mean this much to me and further more to my colleagues. Thanks a ton; from all of us.
