Booked for 2 weeks trip around Queensland. Great rate (best we could find), clean vehicle with no problems whatsoever. Will definitely book again with Nova

Ken Landy, May-2012

Wow! I visit Australia every year and this is my first time booking with Nova. Great experience from best customer service team. Will use your company going forward

Sharon Combes, Mar-2012

We were very happy with the service you offered us on our recent trip to Hobart. We asked for a car to sit 5 people and were expecting a Falcon but were given a Kluger which was very roomy and more than adequate for our requirements. All went very well.

Tasmania for Foodies

Hi! My name is Aoife O'Carroll, and I am a content writer with Nova Car Hire. As a confirmed travel addict, my fantasy holiday of a lifetime would take in the Grand Canyon, Venice, Rio de Janeiro,

Tasmania is a lush, green island off the southern coast of Australia, and its gentle climate and fertile soils deliver some of the finest produce to be found anywhere. Some superb restaurants on the island embrace this quality to serve truly excellent food, but others are not quite so careful, so it pays to know where to eat before you go.

The Stackings

The Stackings is a fine restaurant in the Peppermint Bay complex of Woodbridge, a 45-minute drive south of Hobart. Chef David Moyle and a talented team work to deliver sublime meals based on locally-sourced ingredients in season. Moyle has a particularly light touch with seafood, and his fish dishes are always immaculately fresh and impeccably cooked.


Garagistes, in Hobart, has developed a reputation as Tasmania's most exciting restaurant. Any visitor to Tasmania with an interest in food wants to eat here, and it's easy to see why. The food is seasonal and sourced only from the finest producers. The wine is selected according to a firm belief that wines should be grown and produced locally. Indeed, Garagistes serves what may be Australia's most comprehensive and fascinating list of indigenous wines.

Me Wah

The opulent interior of Me Wah in Hobart (there is also a branch in Launceston) is surpassed only by the sumptuousness of the wine list. This is one of the few places in Tasmania where you can select a Roman'e Conti, but you can sample a vertical of Grange Hermitage if you want to stay local. As for the food, the dumplings stand out, so order plenty of them. Blended on the premises, the XO sauce is out of this world. The handmade noodles tossed in abalone jus will have you licking your lips in fond memory for months to come!

Lebrina Restaurant

Chef Scott Minervini performs magical feats at Lebrina Restaurant, Hobart's leading venue for a special evening out. Set in a cottage, the restaurant is cosily laid out in a series of small rooms, complemented by professional and unobtrusive service. The food is traditional but not staid and served with an exceedingly light touch.

Remi de Provence

To experience the best French cooking in Tasmania, you need to go to Remi de Provence. With an emphasis on provincial fare rather than haute cuisine, the food is simple and perfect. Chef Remi Bancal excels at this style of regional French cuisine, particularly with his braised dishes and aged steaks. The menu is complemented by a wine list featuring many of France's best vintages.


For a comprehensive sampling of Tasmania's best produce, take a gourmet food tour. On a Gourmania walking tour, Hobart host Mary McNeill will introduce you to some of the most talented and passionate food producers, many of which are off the tourist trail. The city tour gives you a unique taste of local culture, urban history, and great food and wine; "Tea to Tapas" is a three-hour tour of Hobart's best restaurants and producers, starting with afternoon tea; "Farmgate to the Plate" starts with a trip to the Farmgate Market, proceeds with a cooking class, and ends with a shared three-course lunch.
