hey Keith,
Hillwood (near Launceston) is probably the most extensive sport climbing area in Tas, and has an easy approach. There are quite a few bolted routes in the Launceston Gorge as well, though I've never climbed there before.

In the south your best bet would probably be the Paradiso at Mount Brown on the Tasman Peninsula. The approach is not difficult but it is a bit lengthy (45 minutes or so). Great climbing by the sea.

There are also a number of sport routes up on Mount Wellington, but these are not very concentrated. The approaches aren't difficult, but may not be ideal for a non climber. There's also Sphinx Rock which is a sandstone cave full of bolted stuff, but it's not really why you'd come to Tassie to climb. There's always the classic Freuhauf and Waterworks in Hobart.

There are a few other sport climbing areas that are amazing but don't have easy approaches (Star Factory at Freycinet, the Boneyard at Final etc.).

Anyway, check out for online guides etc.
