Tasmania is one of motorcycling's best kept secrets. With our temperate climate, smooth winding roads, wonderful scenery, and fascinating destinations such as world famous Wineglass Bay, the Bay of Fires and the mysterious Gordon River overhung by 1000 year old Huon Pines. Take a self guided motorcycle tour or rent a BMW and explore our wonderful island at your own pace.
