Driving on unfamiliar roads can increase your risk of having a crash. Plan ahead, drive and ride with caution and always be aware of changing road and weather conditions.
Most roads in Tasmania are single lane in each direction. Some roads can also be narrow, winding and have sharp corners. You may also encounter gravel roads. Drive to the conditions, allow plenty of time when travelling, drive with caution and pull over in a safe place to allow others to pass from behind.
In Tasmania, the default speeds limits are 50km/h in urban areas, 100km/h on rural roads and 80km/h on gravel roads, unless otherwise signposted.
Travel times in Tasmania can be longer than you expect. Travelling 150 km may take 2 hours.
Plan no more than 300 km per day and take frequent breaks.
