There is free time exploring Hobart and Launceston with insider knowledge and help from a travel director.
Direct flights between Auckland and Hobart could be a reality by 2020, especially if the growth from New Zealand to Tasmania continues as it is, according to John Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of Tourism Tasmania. Fitzgerald’s comments came as he and other representatives from the tourism office welcomed about 120 Kiwi travel agents to a function at Sofitel Viaduct Harbour in Auckland last night.
