487 km one way, Hilly/Mountainous, Hard/Remote, Unsealed/Sealed Roads, Multi-day

This route takes you through the heart of the true Tasmania.  Experience the wilderness and tranquility Tasmania is so famous for as you journey from the North in Devonport to the delightful seaside town of Dover in the South.

This route mainly follows the Tasmanian Trail. Originally developed as a horse trail, the route provides the full range of cycling experiences from sealed roads, to farm and forestry gravel roads, to steep rough tracks through gullies and mountains.

Cycle through remote forests, past tranquil pastures and beside clear rivers. You even have the choice of fording the Mersey River! The Great Western Tiers provide a stunning backdrop as you ride along the Meander Valley. Your climb up to the Central Plateau will be rewarded with stunning views. See how "Mega Watts from Heaven" are created as you ride past the huge penstocks (pipes) delivering water to the Poatina Power Station. The open alpine plains and lakes of Central Plateau give way to the Eucalyptus forests as you head towards the Huon Valley.

As you break out of the forests you are rewarded with stunning coast line scenery and island views. Enjoy a delicious salmon meal fresh from the nearby estuary.

The ride is a challenge and while it goes past quaint villages, you will need to be self-sufficient as there are remote areas.

The Tasmania Trail Association created the Tasmanian Trail and continue to do wonderful work across the length of the trail. There are a number of locations where gates may be locked, so well before you start your journey please contact them to arrange for a trail key. This key will also provide you access to campsite facilities.

We also recommend becoming a TT Association member and purchase the guidebook. Studying the notes before you go will provide great local knowledge for the ride as well as being aware of the precautions regarding cold weather and bushfires.
