Season 7: Tasmania

By Ron Moon and Dean Mellor, 07 Sep 2020 4X4 Adventure Series

Season 7: Tasmania

For Season 7, we head south to tour the picturesque state of Tasmania.

TASMANIA was the perfect setting for Season 7 of the 4X4 Adventure Series, with the Apple Isle trip beginning on a cold and wet summer's day at the iconic Jacob's Ladder.

In this series we venture to Bridport; air down for beach fun on the run to Bellingham; stop by Derby; tour the historical Blue Tier Forest Reserve; have a brew at the Pub in the Paddock; and tackle the Peron Dunes in pursuit of the Friendly Beaches.

Down south we explore Hobart and its surrounds; head to Australia's southern-most point at Cockle Creek; and then head back up to Strahan via Queenstown, cutting through iconic bush tracks.

I-VENTURE: Touring Tassie with Isuzu

We dawdle through the town of Zeehan, before getting back in our 4x4 convoy with Montezuma Falls on the itinerary. It was then on to Granville Harbour, the small fishing town of Temma, and a Sandy Cape run to Sandy Cape Light.

MSA 4X4 and MAXTRAX tagged along in their respective 6WDs, with the MAXTRAX 6x6 encountering some drivetrain gremlins en-route to Montezuma Falls.

A 4x4 trip to the small but beautiful state of Tasmania should be on every off-roader's bucket list.
