Rent a car in Tasmania and drive to Zoodoo Wildlife Park which is located in Richmond. Situated in 80 acres of farmland, Zoodoo Wildlife Park is a hands-on zoo allowing visitors to get up close to the animals. Take a safari bus tour and then enjoy some delicious barbecue back at the Visitors Centre. On the northern coast of Tasmania you will find the Bay of Fires. This picturesque destination still displays evidence of the Aboriginal people who lived along its coast. While you are here you can relax on the beach, go for a walk, indulge in some bird watching, or try your hand at surfing.
When driving in Tasmania it is necessary to always have your driving licence with you. If you are driving through an urban area, the speed limit will be 50km/h unless it is signposted otherwise. The maximum speed limit in Tasmania is 100km/h unless there are signs stating otherwise. Most of the roads in the region are narrow and winding so it is wise to always take extra care and pay special attention as the driving conditions may be different to what you are used to.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
