    Hi, You'd take the Spirit from Melb to Devonport and then drive to Hobart (or sightsee). I think it's about a 10hours journey on the spirit. Check out the website for costs, availability and schedules :)

    Spirit of Tasmania, the ferry, has the prices on its webpage, it is only possible to take a car on the ferry from Melbourne to Devonport and return. The drive to Hobart will take about 3 hours from D,port.
    When you look at the website you can add on cost for number of passengers. Although it is possible to sit in a chair all night I strongly recommend having a cabin so that you can sleep. If you are travelling alone there may be other people in your cabin, I pay extra, about100, to have sole use of a cabin. The beds, sorry bunks, are very close together and I don,t fancy being so close and personal with strangers. I,m fairly sure the ferry only travels at night.
