Saturday 13th April – The Jaguar display will be held in the delightful surrounds of the Parliament Lawns, in the Hobart CBD.  From here you will have a large range of options to explore whilst your car is being displayed. The iconic Salamanca Market is immediately adjacent to the display, and is a great place to find an exotic snack, some uniquely Tasmanian memorabilia, or just browse.  Just across the road at the waterfront, you can find a variety of short and day tours to take you away on an adventure,  Details of suggested activities and dining options will be included in your rally pack.

For those who would prefer a slower pace, we offer a Port Arthur Historic Site guided tour, which includes a short harbour cruise around the Isle of the Dead.  A light morning tea is available at your own cost.

Sunday evening has been left free for you to make your own arrangements; avail yourselves of the myriad of great venues in the Hobart area, or perhaps have a flutter or two in the Casino!

Strahan, Tasmania

Tuesday 16th April – We now commence stage two of the Rally, and make our way westward towards Strahan.  This is a substantial drive, so please ensure your car is fueled and ready before you set out.  There are many interesting places to divert you along the way, so we have set no particular agenda for your drive.  However, we strongly recommend you check out the Wilderness Wall.

After you have checked into your accommodation in Strahan, you can relax, before enjoying a Seafood Buffet in the Strahan Village complex.

Wednesday 17th April – Time to slow right down, and get your wilderness on!  We take a full-day Gordon River Cruise, which takes us across the vast Macquarie Harbour, and up along the wild Gordon River.  A buffet lunch is provided on board.  Numbers for this event are limited, so please book early.

Wednesday evening is free for you to relax and explore.

Thursday 18th April – Time for more wilderness, with another half-day trip on the famous Wilderness Railway.  This takes us right through some of the densest rainforest in the world.   Coffee and a light snack is available at your own cost, at the Lower Landing terminus.

Thursday evening is again free for you to explore, but you may care to attend the long-running live show in Strahan, ‘The Ship that Never Was’.

Friday 19th April – A free day is provided, for you to explore at will.  Drive out to the amazing Hells Gates, at the extremely narrow entrance to Macquarie Harbour, the site of many shipwrecks in the early settlement days of Tasmania, and (weather permitting) wander along the vast expanse of Ocean Beach.  Many more suggestions for things to visit will be provided in your Rally kits.

Friday evening will see our Farewell Seafood Buffet event, where you can relax and reminisce about your Rally experiences,

Saturday 20th April – We depart Strahan, and say farewell for another year.  You can make your way back towards home, or set out on your own touring adventure.

Please come and have a great time with us in Tasmania.
