Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Launceston is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. The time zone difference moving from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Tasmania) (AEST) is 2 hours.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Coles Bay.
