Look at it from his perspective
Im begining to think from this thread that I’ve had my eye a bit to much coastal spots for stays, and experience is saying inland and branching out from there is the go
My thoughts exactly BygDaddee.
Great info fellas. This'll definitely help make the most of my time
Sorry to hijack your thread, its just coincidental timing im working on same plans for a bit later
Not at all mate.
These threads are to help everyone maximise their time, money and enjoyment, whether they be in Tassie now or someone planning a ride 10yrs from now.
I'm just grateful for the depth of knowledge here and everyone giving up their time to share it.
March, inland, maybe cool... part and parcel of the latitude though.
March is the best month weather wise. Generally very stable and around the mid 20’s
The east coast water in march is as warm as it gets, the targa in 01 or 02 had snow on the queenstown run, that might've been early April though, I assume the water is colder west coast, I know zip about fishing/water on the west coast apart from scant bits about Macquarie harbour which iirc is suffering from the fish farms there and lack of tidal flow.
Outback, I've got a mate who has a place with a big backyard pretty handy to the north but he's twice as mad as a cut snake so possibly a weak choice. He does have oodles of deer and fish though I was going to send @OldDog to him (if he retires to tassie) cause they'd get on just splendidly
Im hoping for last week of March, timing is abit out my control at the moment, it could be April, or ill have to let it slip to another time.
Anyway a bit like the old saying “the worst days fishing is still better than the best day at work”
Just got a phone call BD, snow in Deloraine today, forecast in the 30’s by Thu next. You don’t go to Tas for the weather.
March/April is a great time to ride in Tas
Yes Tullah is the base for the north west
Book early and you will have no problem getting accomodation.

Great steam museum at Westbury too!!
The weather is what you get, the climate is what average people get.
Any time is a great time to be in Tassie.
Planning on doing some walking down there .. but I need to get fit first.
~ 4 days daywalks in Cradle Mt area...
~ 10 days Overland track with side trips
~ 10 days Pine Valley area
~ 10 days Arm Rv track, Mt Pillinger to Walls Of Jerusalem area
March? April - for the autum colour. Might go back in winter for the Overland Track with the commercial huts = hot shower at the end of the day, food and shelter laid on and not carrying so much.
It's 3 years since I've ridden tassie so my information may be out of date however
The Weldborough pub has an excellent camp ground out the back for a very reasonable fee $5 pp?? and does good meals - it's a beautiful spot for exploring the north east
There is a council run camping area with good amenities for free at St Mary's - walking distance to the pub and a good location to explore central east coast and inland
The north coast between Devonport and Burnie ( I based myself at Penguin) is a good base for day trips to cradle mountain mole creek etc
Stanley campground on the beachfront is walking distance to town and the famous nut - good base to explore north west and down the west coast to Arthur river
Head south of Hobart and find a base (I stayed at Snug) to further explore the great riding around the peninsular to Cygent and on to southport and if time permits catch the ferry to Bruny island
The mount field national park camp ground is a good base to ride out to Strathgordon (highly recommended ride)
I mght have missed it but cheap motel/cabin type stuff north east ?
That sorta finished in the early '90s...and not just in the north-east.
Maybe "reasonable" if sharing amongst a small group would be as "cheap" as it gets.
Ok ill rephrase,
Competitivly priced compared to others
Branxholm. The owner is a motorcyclist and hails from Finley. Onsite van at Tomahawk but there ain’t much else there, great spot. Scottsdale and Bridport are pricey because of the golfists. Derby. Winnaleah. All good pubs.
