The Tasmanian Trail renaissance

The picturesque farmlands, virgin bush and river valleys that form the Tasmanian Trail have been quietly seducing cyclists for almost 18 years. But a period of disrepair gave the trail a bad name and as usage began to decline, a dedicated group of volunteers stepped up to the challenge of bringing the trail back to life. Now, with the renaissance well and truly under way, I chat to two of the Tasmanian Trail's management committee volunteers about what it's like to take the scenic route.

The Tassie Express: Hobart to Launceston via Swansea

Cycling along Nugent Rd, Tasmania, from Hobart to Orford. Cycle Traveller

This four-day Tassie Express bicycle touring route between the island state's two main cities – Hobart and Launceston – is designed to fit nicely into the space of a week, giving you some spare days to take in the sights. Besides the two main cities, Hobart and Launceston – which as two of the oldest cities in Australia are little historical gems, with plenty of museums, restaurants and cafes to keep you occupied – this bike route will take you through rolling countryside, past Maria Island, along the coast with spectacular views of the Freycinet Peninsula, and then up over the mountains through farmlands to Launceston.
