Targa Tasmania

TasVacations is the official accommodation provider for Targa Tasmania - the Ultimate Tarmac Rally. The 2022 rally runs from 26th April to 1st May. We can assist with all your accommodation, vehicle rental and attractions reservations.

Targa Australia run the world's largest, longest and hardest tarmac rally event - Targa Tasmania. The concept of the Targa is drawn directly from the best features of the Targa Florio, Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes and the Tour de Corse. However, Targa Tasmania is not a slow motion re-run; it is a genuine "red-blooded" motorsport competition.

The Rolex Sydney Hobart is a 628 nautical mile yacht race which begins in Sydney Harbour and finishes in Hobart.

Be part of the scene at one of the world's great blue water classics.

Each December you can see the world's greatest yachts charging through Sydney Heads as they take part in the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Once through The Heads, they turn south knowing they are casting their fate to the might of the great Southern Ocean and the winds of the Roaring Forties. The 628 nautical mile course is described as one of the most gruelling ocean races in the world. Since 1945, this blue water classic has thrilled Australians.

Thousands line Sydney Harbour or form farewell flotillas to cheer the departing yachties. Days later, in Hobart, the excitement builds as news of who will be the first boat to arrive comes through.

2022 ROLEX Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race : Race starts December 26 from Sydney.

From 26 Dec 2022
