5 day 6 Night self guided tour of Tasmania

The busy world we all share doesn’t always allow us the long break we would prefer.

Moto Adventure Tasmania has created this tour designed for those with only 5 days (6 nights) to experience Tassie.

Priced approximately $2750 pp (for a couple on a BMW1200) other bikes make it cheaper..

The route will help you explore the East, North East and West Coast and Western Wilderness of Tasmania.

We supply the bikes, the bookings and our passion for Tasmania reflected in the suggested itinerary.
