Has been great to see a few more of you as you start to travel again.
This week we have daily Monday to Friday flights to Melbourne with Qantas. Interstate border restrictions remain in place, but we are looking forward to the Tasmanian Government announced this Friday 26th June 2020. We have also seen some people travelling to the Flinders and King Island which is great.
We are staffing the car park for the interstate Qantas flights. We also staffing the car park at other times, including when we are performing car wash services for customers even if there are no flights. If you are flying to the Islands, then we will be at the car park on demand - simply book online or give us a call and let us know when you are travelling.
If you are travelling interstate or to the islands the best option is still to book online. If online booking is not your thing, then you can continue to also drive in and take a ticket at the entry.
For the first time in history, the sunrise at Stonehenge will be live-streamed to mark the northern hemisphere's summer solstice. The solstice is on the 21st of June and is the 'longest day' of the year. Here in the southern hemisphere, June 21st is the winter solstice and marks our 'shortest day.'
The restrictions in Tasmania started to lift significantly on Friday 5th June 2020 which was very welcomed. This is fantastic news for all Tasmanians and presents opportunities to travel and to enjoy our great state.
We still have 2 flights per week with Qantas into and out of Launceston.

Macquarie Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site halfway between New Zealand and Antarctica, but did you know it is actually part of Tasmania? It takes about 3 days to get from Hobart to Macquarie Island, however, if you don’t fancy a 3-day boat trip you can take a virtual tour right now thanks to the Australian Antarctic Division. buff.ly/2xHRAIx.
This Anzac Day will be different for all of us. Even though we can't physically stand together, it is still a chance for each of us to reflect with gratitude on the sacrifice of those serving now and of those who have served before us.
Things are changing rapidly with COVID-19. Due to Australian government support, Qantas now has 2 flights per week into Launceston. These flights operate on a Monday and Friday. We will be staffing the car park for these flights if you are flying out or are flying back in.
The car park will continue to be operational as normal 24/7. We will still be out at the car park doing regular security and maintenance checks as required.
Tasmania 🥰"If you will stay close to nature, to it's simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
The view of pencil pines and the ominous figure of King Davids Peak reflecting in a still pool at the Walls of Jerusalem is simply breathtaking, Horseshoe Falls surrounded by lush wilderness in the Mt Field National Park is a must-do short walk, winter wonderland at Cradle Mountain is a truly majestic sight, the Great Eastern Drive is one of the finest in the country and on a clear day you can take in the spectacular view from Cape Raoul along the Tasman Peninsula and all the way to kunanyi/Mt Wellington in this distance.
Not only will Peron Dunes on Tassie's far north-east coastline streal your heart but welcome you back with open arms every time, the vivid colours of lichen over the granite of Sawyers Bay on Flinders Island are nature's way of saying 'You can't top this', if you look closely along the beautiful Pine Lake boardwalk in the Highland Lakes you will find Tassie written in the snow, there is no better spot for 'Lunch with a View' then the picturesque multi-tiered Hardings Falls and sunrise beams scattered by the railing of a jetty on Picnic Island, Freycinet, Tasmania. as you look towards the magnificent Hazards mountain range will have you thinking 'This is Heaven'.
There are also scenes that have lasted though the ages in the misty and remote Southwest National Park, clouds reflecting perfectly on the calm surface of the Pieman River at Corinna whilst the gurgling of water resonates through the air at Myrtle Gully Falls which flows superbly after a heavy downpour.
Oh and did we mention you can walk right beside the 'Guardians of the Pass' where sharp mountain summits at Barons Pass cut through cloud and the scenery on the trek to Frenchmans Cap starts showing off.

I used Launceston park drive fly for the first time over new year. I don’t know this business at all but: they were cheaper than the airport, easier to book than the airport, door to door therefore no issues in the rain or heat (unlike the airport), good car clean while I was away (unlike the airport) and most importantly to me, I presume they pay their rates, unlike the corporation that owns the Launicest on airport. ...
