What better way to experience Tasmania than being in your own specialised car or motorcycle. Imagine driving the roads that many motoring enthusiasts have travelled and consider to be among the worlds best. You will stop along the way to marvel at Tasmania’s great history, breathtaking scenery, and indulge in the best of the state’s award-winning food and wine.
Tasmania is only a short journey from mainland Australia easily accessible on the Spirit of Tasmania.
Booking as a group has many advantages and we are happy to take the hard work out of your hands. We have an enormous range of options to suit every lifestyle, budget and time frame from day tours to multi day trips.
TasVacations will work closely with you to customise an itinerary specifically tailored to suit your group. This may include:
We just wanted to thank you for organising the accommodation and dinners for our trip last weekend. It was a fantastic 5 days and everything went smoothly!Bob,
We believe we have all the ingredients for a magnificent ten day tour of Tasmania, a wonderful team, the prospects of a diverse range of exciting routes, outstanding accommodation, and wonderful cars in which to travel. The arrangements in Tasmania and for the ferry seem to be particularly well thought out and comprehensive. None of this would have been possible without the support and hard work of Zuleika. Our sincere thanks go to her.Rowan S,
We arrived back in Melbourne on Saturday morning for a communal breakfast and a final farewell after a most remarkable tour.
On behalf of the Vintage Cars and Drivers group I do want to thank you for the superb organisation of our trip. This group has travelled for many years, indeed some members, now in their eighties, have been at it for sixty years or so. All agreed that this was the happiest and best organised trip in which they have participated. The accommodation was superb and the staff of the various motels etc., in which we stayed were thoughtful and endlessly helpful. The distances between accommodation was also excellent enabling us to enjoy some adventurous drives but not have to spend too long on the road. Going clockwise around Tasmania meant that we were able to get into our driving strides and sort out mechanical problems before the more challenging roads of the last couple of days.
At every stop we found people who were interested, helpful when needed always ready for an interesting chat.
Thank you for everything you have done to make our trip such a wonderful success.Rowan S,

You will mix with Targa Tasmania competitors at the official start and finish of the event, leading the field in your classic car at selected stages throughout, in front of hundreds of adoring spectators.
The Shannons Targa Tasmania Classic Rallye is a non-competitive touring event that combines the best of Tasmania with an inside view of the competitive components of Targa Tasmania. This is only made possible through the great relationship TasVacations has with Targa Tasmania.
This magnificent 9 day classic rallye will guide you through Tasmania’s natural wonders and quaintest of towns via some of Targa Tasmania’s signature Rallye stages. You will stop along the way to marvel at Tasmania’s great history, breathtaking scenery and indulge in the best of the state’s award-winning food and wine.

You will be joined by other like-minded motoring enthusiasts as your Classic Rallye starts in Devonport. The Official Start commences at Hotel Grand Chancellor, Launceston followed by other Targa stages.
Your 9 day, 8 night, guided tour will end as you cross the Official Finish in Hobart where you will receive your Targa Tasmania Finishers Medallion. Then celebrate the success of the tour at the exclusive Targa Tasmania VIP Finishers Party, followed by your groups own Finishers Presentation Dinner.
