There’s an experience that simply cannot be summed up in a picture or two. Yes, the scenery is jaw-dropping amazing! However, you can’t capture the fresh smell of eucalypt and peppermint trees after an overnight rainfall. Or the calm sea-breeze across your face as you ride along a 3km stretch of isolated beach. And you certainly cannot appreciate the scope of a 360° view of the entire south of Tasmania, whilst sitting atop 1,260 metres of volcanic mountain with barely a soul in sight!Wild Bike Tours will take you and your friends deep into the remote wilderness of southern Tasmania for a full day adventure ride. Or, if you’re short on time, an exhilarating ride down the face of Mount Wellington on our special Wellington to the Waterfront ride, which spends plenty of time off the road!Visit World Heritage listed wilderness, coastal plains, untouched beaches, mountain regions and watch out for all kinds of wildlife. See parts of Tasmania that you never knew existed, that most locals only know of through rumour and here-say. Feel the history of early pioneers and aboriginal heritage and learn about modern environmental management.From high value conservation areas to technical descents, the tours are graded on ability and fitness. From the easy tour for those new to mountain biking, to intermediate for those looking for a challenge, right through to the physical demands expected of the more advanced riders.All adventure rides include transport to and from the trails in the “Troopy”, an intimate ride that can’t help but break the ice. « less

With 16 Tasmanian wines always on tasting, a knowledgeable wine expert to guide you through the ever-changing labels, a stylish interior design, and fascinating information about the island's wines and history- this is no ordinary tasting experience. With its sandstone facade and tall brick chimney, it's clear that the Gasworks complex has an industrial past. The cylindrical gasometer tank that once stored coal-gas is gone, but this is the place where coal was burned to generate the gas that lit the streets of Hobart. The Cellar Door itself is located in the original Gasworks head office, where high ceilings, polished Tasmanian oak floors and a sweeping timber staircase reflect the importance of the enterprise from the late 1850s. « less
