Bicycle Hire Hobart


Wow, what a fantastic bike scheme here! Not only do you get a free bike to ride around with - you can buy a piece of local art (from an approved gallery) and get a 12 months interest free loan!

ARTBIKES is a bike borrowing scheme that enables visitors to easily access Hobart’s arts precincts and other attractions. 

Spend the day immersing yourself in Hobart's arts, culture and sights with a state-of-the-art, Dutch designed bike. Simple, light and strong, with inbuilt solar-charged lights, ARTBIKES are available in male and unisex models.

A helmet, lock and map are provided.

To borrow an ARTBIKE you will need:

  • a credit or debit card
  • photo ID
  • if you are under 18 you need a parent or guardian to ride with you.


ARTBIKES are free if you pickup and return them on the same day. Or you can:

  • hire overnight for $22 or
  • for the weekend for $44.


ARTBIKES can't be booked, they are offered on a first in, first served basis.

In general we find that deliveries to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane metro and VIC regional are made within 1-3 working days. NSW, SA, TAS, ACT and NT take 2-5 working days. Regional QLD, WA and other remote areas will take 5-7 working days.

We use Australia Post for all of our deliveries except for Bulky Items. For bulky items we use Direct Freight Couriers.



Our internal shipping charge calculator will tell you the cost of your postage prior to your checkout. In most cases buying more than 1 item will result in cost savings to you. 

  • Small items up to 500g cost  around $7 postage. Depending on the weight and size you will get 2 sometimes 3 small items posted for this amount.
  • Most larger items post for about $12 and you will generally be able to add 1-3 small items at no extra charge
  • Once you purchase products over 3 kg in weight there is generally, only a small amount of extra postage charged


You can add smaller items together with bulky items and there will generally be no or a small added postage cost.
Ordering items such as 2 bike cases may not result in any savings due to their volume. Ordering mid-size items like two fluid trainers together will result in very good savings though. You will get your quote for shipping costs before you checkout.
