We are thrilled to welcome Circle of Life Doughnut Co. to our terminal.

Locally owned and made, Circle of Life have fast become a Tassie favourite and we’re excited to join them on the next part of their journey.

Offering specialty doughnuts filled with local ingredients, we can’t wait to see some of our State’s best represented at HBA!

Camera traps are also used to monitor the movements and better understand the behaviour of animals in the airport environment.  

Since the installation of camera traps in early 2016, images collected have shown that many threatened species use the environment around and within the airport boundary including the Tasmanian Devil, the Spotted quoll and the Tasmanian bettong.

We recognise our role in protecting the biodiversity of the airport and Tasmania more broadly and are confident this technology will assist us in doing so.

Environment Manager Kirsten Leggett

Initial testing of virtual fencing devices in Tasmania has seen a 50 per cent reduction in road kill deaths over a three-year period and has been instrumental in protecting the remaining Tasmanian Devil population.

The virtual fencing will be monitored by Hobart Airport’s environment team to capture and report data on the rates of roadkill deaths in the area and better understand the behaviour of the animals that call the airport home.

“We’re building better facilities and a better airport to serve our community”
