What To Pack On Your Winter Motorhome Hire In Tasmania

Winter is a spectacular time of year to visit Tasmania, offering a mix of snow-covered destinations and the enthralling Dark Mofo festival.  We know packing to visit Tasmania can often be a challenge with many travellers wondering exactly what to bring along.

Read our recommended list of items to include in your backpacks and you will be ready to begin your motorhome hire adventure in Tasmania!

Solid Walking Boots

Tasmania is a bushwalking haven providing a myriad of world class treks and hikes in breathtaking national park settings. Whether you’re seeking a casual day walk around the city or a six night trek of Lake St Clair, a solid pair of walking boots will serve you well on your motorhome journey around Tasmania.

Waterproof Jacket & All Weather Clothing

It’s often said that Tasmania can experience four seasons in one day. So, don’t get caught out in the rain and be sure to bring a water proof jacket in your bag just in case! It’s also a sensible idea to pack layered clothing including thermals and jumpers to peel off on moderate days. Though winter may not be Tasmania’s warmest time of year, the sun will still heat you up quickly!


A visit to the Apple Isle will see you knee-deep in pure unadulterated nature which often impacts on state-wide signal access. If you’re planning on snuggling up in the comfort of your motorhome at night, we recommend bringing along some DVDs to ensure you make the most of your on board television.  

A Travel Guide

Tasmania is jam-packed with fantastic natural attractions, food and wine experiences, world class museums and friendly locals. Bring along your favourite travel guide and ensure you make the most of your Tasmanian motorhome hire experience. Don’t forget to ask for travel tips from our friendly staff at the Cruisin’ depot and if in doubt the locals will never fail to offer their top-notch advice.

Sun Protection

No matter what time of year, the rays of the Tasmanian sun can be piercing and the UV level high. Be sure to bring along some sun protection including hats, sun cream and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun, especially when bushwalking or skiing!

Your Camera

Trust us; this is one item you won’t want to forget from your suitcase! Tasmania is simply bursting with magical photo opportunities and there is no better way to experience them all than from the comfort of your flexible motorhome. Capture awe inspiring panoramic shots from the peak of Mount Amos at Freycinet National Park or snap the day away at the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), famous for its controversial and world renowned art collection.

A Formal Outfit

Most visitors to the Apple Isle are armed with their thermals, walking boots and maps but let’s not forget the formal side of the state! Tasmania is home to a range of coveted restaurants offering  everything from eight course degustations to a casual jaunts capitalising on Tasmania’s fresh produce. A night out on the town in one of the state’s cities will take you to cutting edge bars, laidback establishments and nightclubs up to date with the latest music. Don’t  forget your dancing shoes!
