Hire a campervan in Melbourne or Tassy?  (5 Answers)

Hi, I am planning to travel to Tasmania next summer for a fortnight self-drive trip with my husband. I wondered, does anyone have any experience with campervan hire? Am I better off to fly from Perth to Melbourne and hire the camper there to take over on the ferry, or fly Perth to Hobart and hire the camper in Tasmania? I just wondered, with high volume of customers in Melbourne, if my range of choices/prices would be better? Thanks in advance. Caro.

I am fascinated by Tasmania, eversince I watched a movie filmed in Tasmania. Since, I am in Sydney, I decided to visit Tasmania on the end of my trip. My worry is, since I dont drive, will it still possible to navigate Tasmania tourist spots by public transport? I know it almost impossible but at least I will cover some places.

Has anyone booked a coach tour through Global Journeys? Their prices are so much better than booking with AAT Kings directly that they seem too good to be true.
