BMW R1200GS in Tasmania

This might be just the tour you are looking for!

It’s long enough to touch all corners of Tasmania.

We have created this tour for those with 7 days (8 nights) to experience Tassie.

The route will help you explore the South, East, North East, West Coast and Western Wilderness of Tasmania. Accommodation is mostly in friendly 3.5 to 4 star quality hotels, and cabins.  We supply the bikes, the bookings and our passion for Tasmania is reflected in the suggested itinerary.

Ride a quality BMW or similar multi-purpose motorcycles, best if you bring your own riding gear, but if you don’t have enough we can help out from our stock of used gear.

Stay at quality accommodation each night, breakfast supplied at some venues, or nearby cafes. Lunch and dinner are up to you, but we will supply you with our suggestions.

If you are not experienced at this kind of riding, let us know, and we can tailor a slightly more achievable (and safer) ride for you.
