Tasmania 2018 (15-25 Mar 2018) UPDATED

Start date: Thursday, 15 March 2018
End date: Sunday, 25 March 2018

UPDATE (13-Oct): Places on the Spirit of Tasmania are filling fast, so if you are planning on attending the Club ride in March 2018, you had better book NOW! As of today, 13 October, 2017, there are currently NO motorcycle spots left on the evening sailing on Thursday 15 March, so you may have to alter your travel plans. Spots on the return trip (Saturday 24 March) are still available, but will no doubt will fast. Accommodation options will also be limited if you don’t do something soon, so you are encouraged to BOOK NOW! Just so we have an idea of numbers, please confirm your departure and return dates to Tony Jones (

Following on from the Club’s successful trip to Tasmania in March 2016, the Club is proposing to return to the Apple Isle in March 2018.

Tasmania offers many tourist attractions, fabulous motorcycling roads, beautiful scenery, and good weather (usually!) in March.  Again, Tasmania offers fabulous motorcycle roads just in case you missed it the first time!

The Club proposes that the group ride will depart Melbourne on the evening of Thursday, 15 March 2018 on the Spirit of Tasmania, and return on the Spirit’s evening sailing on Saturday, 24 March 2018.

Those interested in attending may wish to depart and/or return earlier or later, and this is totally at your discretion. Please see the preliminary itinerary to get an idea of what we have in mind for the trip.

IMPORTANT! The Club will not be organising a group booking with the ferry operator, or any accommodation. It will be each individual participant’s responsibility to book their own fares and accommodation.
