Have you ever wanted to venture overseas with your Subaru?

This 4 day Epic will consist of a long boat ride, a few twisty roads in a far away place and another long boat ride.

If you intend on coming please book your tickets on the spirit of Tasmania and any annual leave for that weekend (The Monday and possibly the Friday and Wednesday) Tuesday is Melbourne Cup day.  

There is a night crossing on the Friday night (the 2nd) then we cruise on the Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and return on the night crossing Tuesday night (The 6th).  The RACV has member discounts of 10% for the spirit of Tasmania, we recommend having "Total Care" just in case you need to be towed due to a break down while in Tasmania.

There is E85 now in Davenport, Launceston and Hobart.  You can't take full jerry cans of E85 on the Spirit of Tasmania (despite its name, get it??!!).  Those on 98 might even need one for the west side route (unsure of 98 RON availability).

Exact route now final see below, click for google maps links. Our plan is to take in as much as we can of the Targa Tasmania Route.  Here is the suggested 4 day split of roads.  There are optional detours that can be skipped.

The first night will be in Hobart and then the next 2 nights in Launceston will suit the cruise days.  You will need to book your own accommodation.
