"New will and new leadership" is what Tasmania needs, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has told Liberal party faithful this morning.
Mr Abbott addressed about 300 delegates at the party's annual state conference in Hobart.
He praised them for the success at the federal level and endorsed State Opposition Leader Will Hodgman as the next Premier.
Fifty days since the Liberals won office at the federal level, Mr Abbott said they'd made a strong start.
"We should set no limits on what we can achieve, we should set no limits on our future and yet all too often particularly here in Tasmania, we have programmed ourselves to fail," Mr Abbott said.
"We have burdened ourselves with unnecessary taxes and regulations, we have set standards of perfection which no one can achieve instead of getting on with a reasonable job with a reasonable prospect of success."
He also had a message for new Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, urging him to clear the way for the carbon tax to be repealed before Christmas.
"If you can change your mind on your colleagues you can change your mind on something of far more weight for the people of Australia."
Mr Abbott left straight after his 20 minute speech, heading to Sydney to greet Tasmanian-born Princess Mary.
