This is our self guided bike tour to the West coast of Tasmania. You can start any day. We provide a very detailed and easy to follow route description which also contains countless tips and advice. The tour can be booked in one of four accommodation categories. The itinerary is very flexible and can be customized to individual requirements. For an additional fee we can arrange luggage transport for you.

This trip starts with an arrival day in historic and quite Evandale (close to Launceston airport). The first day's cycling is long, but mostly flat. You stay in the laid-back village of Mole Creek. The next day go up into the high country to stay at a remote but extremely nice Bed and Breakfast. After a short ride the following day you'll arrive at famous Cradle Mountain National Park where you can walk around romantic Dove Lake or do even longer walks. From now on there is more downhill than uphill cycling.

After a stop-over in the old mining town of Roseberry you head to the "tourist-magnet" of Strahan for 2 nights. There you have the opportunity to take a half-day cruise into the spectacular wilderness of the Gordon River, one of the worlds last remaining pristine rivers. The section to Queenstown (which looks like a lunar landscape) is short but features 273 bends through dense forest. The section to the 3-house settlement of Derwent Bridge is quite tough but offers some extremely nice walks.

After you have visited nearby Lake St.Clair National Park next morning, you continue on the "wild way" to the little town of Ouse. Last day, on the way to Hobart, you can visit Mount Field National Park with its famous Russel falls.
