THE TIGER TASMANIA RALLY
March 2 to 29, 2020
THE ISLAND AT THE END OF THE WORLD
The Tiger Tasmania is one of our featured islands in our series which includes Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Borneo.
Our stunning Tiger Tasmania car rally includes a chance to explore beautiful Victoria State before travelling on the ferry to Tasmania. From the squeaky white sand and lichen-splashed granite of the east coast to the alpine plateaus of Cradle Mountain, Tasmania punches well above its weight when it comes to natural beauty and we aim to see it all. Not only that but we pay homage to the great Targa Tasmania rally by driving most of its stages – but at a more leisurely pace!
TIGER TASMANIA RALLY IN DETAIL
After the cars are collected in Melbourne the rally will explore some of the great routes along the coast including the Great Ocean Road before turning inland and visiting a series of typical Australian towns in Victoria before dropping into Canberra and turning south back to Melbourne and the ferry to Tasmania.
From Melbourne we drive the Great Ocean Road and The Twelve Apostles to Warrnambool. The next day we drive on to Portland Bay then head up via Mt Gambier, Lindsay and Balmoral to Horsham. Heading east we explore the roads to Bendigo via Halls Gap, Beaufort and Ballart. Then it’s up to Rutherglen through Mitiamo, Echuca and Yarrowonga. As usual we find the best roads with superb scenery and great little stops.
From here we make a visit to Canberra in Australian Capital Territory. Heading south the rally goes to Bairnsdale before making its way to Melbourne where we pick up the overnight ferry to Tasmania. A cabin is included in the entry fee.
Tasmania may look like it has few roads, but don’t be fooled, many of them are not on some of the popular maps. We will not only take you on some unchartered roads but will combine the human and natural worlds to give a real Tasmanian experience. With a unique wilderness, unusual wildlife, extraordinary arts and fabulous food, it’s a truly stunning drive.
We have a great set of routes including many used on the internationally renowned Targa Tasmania stages, including High Plains, Moriarty, Elephant Pass, Grasstree Hill, Tinderbox, Molesworth, Gunns Plain, Nook and many more.
While these are taken flat out on the Targa we will drive them with a view
to experiencing the stages without the haste.
The Tiger Tasmania is designed to give you the time to see and appreciate the roads, countryside, people, art and history from Cradle Mountain to the Bay of Fires, not to mention the odd national park, incredible lakes, harbours and beaches.
With multiple rest days we have the opportunity to sample the local cuisine, visit museums and historic sights and get a chance to catch our breath.
