We can confidently say that no-one has ever done a bike tour of Tasmania like this before.
Australia’s island state of Tasmania is full of contrasts; from white deserted beaches to rugged mountains and rainforests, wild rivers, and historic villages. More than 42% of the state is National Park and much of that is World Heritage listed. We will cycle through many of these national parks, exploring Tasmania’s unique flora and fauna and breathtaking natural beauty. In contrast to Tasmania’s spectacular scenery, we will explore its European settlement history - plentiful for such a short period and unfortunately, remarkably bloody! Learn about the indigenous people of Tasmania from their descendants. Hear their stories of the Dreamtime and see Tasmania through their eyes as it was pre white settlement. We will also visit the state’s oldest and newest man-made attractions. The sinister, atmospheric ruins of Port Arthur prison is intriguing and the recently opened Museum of old and new art - MONA - is a sensational collection as well as architecturally fascinating. Some have suggested it could be the best museum in the world!
This 3 week tour can be ridden in week long stages or as a whole clockwise circumnavigation of the Isle. We will enjoy 'balanced' days. This means a good outing on the bike (averaging 80km / 50 miles per riding day) to ensure we have plenty of time to soak in some amazing sites, museums and experiences.
