Tasmania is becoming an increasingly attractive tourist destination for travelers from America and Europe for many compelling reasons. For one, this island state of Australia is well known for its fascinating ecology. Because it’s so isolated from the mainland, unique species of flora and fauna have evolved, making Tasmania a top destination for nature lovers. You’ll also find a number of attractions related to their British heritage, from farms and mines to museums and historic houses. And, like much of Australia, visitors can enjoy adventure sports, cruises, and tours galore. You can stay in Hobart, or venture out to the furthest reaches of the island.

If you’re hoping to visit Tasmania, there are some really budget-friendly ways to do it, including using the iVenture Tasmania Flexi Attractions Pass. You can save up to 30% on combined general admission prices, and have access to your choice of nearly 30 of the best Tasmanian attractions.

Included Tasmania Attractions

How the Tasmania Flexi Attractions Pass Works

The iVenture Tasmania Flexi Attractions Pass offers a potential savings of up to 30% on your choice of 29 top attractions across the entire island. You don’t choose in advance what you want to see, but can pick as you go along.

You purchase the pass in increments of three, five, or seven tickets, and can visit that many attractions within three months from the date of card issuance.

The product itself is a plastic Smart Card, like a credit card, with a computer chip that tells the attraction you’ve paid in advance for admission. You’ll pay nothing to attraction for general admission.

What’s Good?

Customers appreciate the good value you get from the Tasmania Flexi Attractions Pass. You can save up to 30% on general admission to the included attractions, and that’s a deal you won’t get on individual tickets no matter how hard you try.

There’s also a lot of flexibility in how you use the product. While some attractions require reservations, there’s no need to decide what you want to see at the time of purchase. Just pick and choose as you go. This is also nice if different people in your party what to do different things.

The pass is also really simple to use. All you have to do is present the card to your chosen attractions, and you’re set to enjoy! The card is easier to keep track of than tickets and serves as a nice memento of your trip, too.

People also like the duration of the pass. You get three full months from the date of card issuance to visit your attractions. This can be helpful for longer vacations in Tasmania, or even for locals who want to see more of their home island.

The product also comes with a full color guidebook and map, which can make planning so much easier – especially when you’re dealing with navigating around an entire island.

How Could the Pass Get Better?

Although the iVenture program gives you access to nearly 30 popular Tasmanian attractions, you can only choose a maximum of seven. This can be limiting if there’s more you want to see, or if you’re on the island for a longer trip.

There are also some attractions that this pass doesn’t include, like many museums and historic sites, nature preserves, and cycling or hiking tours. While the product obviously can’t include everything there is to do on the island, it does feel like the selection is a bit narrow.

iVenture products in other markets (and elsewhere in Australia) also provide additional “Show and Save” discounts on things like shopping and dining. It would be nice if they included them in Tasmania, because that helps overall budgeting.

It’s also important to note that the pass typically covers only general admission. If you want to do anything extra, you have to pay out of pocket.

Some other markets also offer skip the line benefits, which is not currently the case in Tasmania. While it may not save you much time in the off-season, it can always help when its busiest.

Get Your Money’s Worth

The best way to maximize the value of the product is to see the more expensive attractions (assuming they are things you are interested in). iVenture calculates their estimated savings percentage based up on your visiting those pricier attractions, so it’s worth it to follow their model.

It may sound obvious, but you also need to visit the number of attractions you purchased. Don’t buy a seven attraction pass and only do six things. Sometimes plans change, but do try to see what you paid for.

Insider Tips

The pass itself doesn’t require that you decide what you want to do at the time of purchase, but it makes a lot of sense to decide what you want to do before arriving in Tasmania. Many attractions are rather far apart, and several require reservations.

Be sure to budget in transit costs! While the attractions included with the Tasmania Flexi Attractions pass are sometimes clustered together, most are quite far apart and you’ll need to provide your own transit between them.

iVenture on occasion changes the attractions that are included with the pass program. Check their website for the most up-to-date info, or contact customer service.

The iVenture site also includes an interactive map that could help you plan your trip. It’s a little clunky to use because things are so spread out in Tasmania, but it’s worth a look at to see if it’s of assistance.

Where to Buy the Tasmania Flexi Attractions Pass

The Tasmania Flexi Attractions Pass can be purchased online or over the phone directly from iVenture.

You may also purchase the pass in town once you arrive at a number of specified purchase locations. However, you will likely pay more for the pass than you would if you purchase in advance, online.
