Hey Mate there haven't been any Tassie Cruises as such as there aren't many members in Tassie. From what I know of there are about a dozen GTi's floating about (I own 2, another member owns 3!) and soe of those don't see the light of say as they are works in progress. :cry:

If you would be interested in a Tassie Cruise there are probably 4-5 guys here who would possibly come (me being one!) but they may not all have GTi's to roll in LOL

I'm not sure a pure Tassie Cruise like that would ever get off the ground but if you want to take the trip I'm sure all the Tassie boys could point you to the roads to drive and places to see. I know I'd be up for it!

I visited Tasmania in 2008. Might as well just rename it 'Vehicle Heaven'. Even though my hire car was a 1.6 Getz, I still had a ball. :twisted:

Most memorable for me was the unusual concept of a genuine 15 km/hr hairpin I spotted somewhere near Cradle Mountain... Secondly, that drive up Ben Lomond via 'Jacob's Ladder'... I'm from WA FFS! :shock: A GTi would be nuts on those roads!

Please don't make me drive that Cultus POS all the way across the Nullabor to get there if there is a cruise forming... :lol: [-o< [-( :-k

I'm happy to help organise anything, scout routes etc but i can't have anyone to stay as i've already got too many people in my 3 bedroom house (7) but there are plenty of places to stay :)

Wow this thing is starting to get legs! If we did it sometime around Feb then the weather is good, people have time to get $ together etc and things can get planned etc. I might even see if we can get onto Symonds Plains for a day too :)

Symonds plains!
if a track is getting organised then this might persuade more people to swim over!
Feb may be a little early

I'm not fussed when, but I am hopeful of getting onto Symonds Plains if we can, I'll just have to speak to a few club members to confirm we could use it and wha costs are etc.

If People are keen give me some idea of dates etc. FYI JUly & August are no good for me as its my stupid season at work (tax accountant)

Reading all these comments makes me think we could organize a state cruise over the course of a week or something.great idea for a GTI meet and maybe a holiday for some interstate members :) .ive lived in tassie for a year now and some of the roads here are unreal to drive.i think its something that will be definately be organised,so watch this space people!

Now if only my gti was registerable haha.

Depending on dates I could join, I'll just tag along with the Sydney boys. I won't have a car but that didn't stop me going to Queensland either

Cheers guys, looks like people are starting to warm to the idea. If you want to throw some dates that might work at me I might start tentatively looking at things. for me June-August are no good but otherwise I can be around. Depending on what people want to see/do you'll need a minimum 4 days to just drive places, longer if you want to actually stop anywhere :P

We can always run it around a weekend then people who want to stay longer can and those that don't can head back, while also giving the locals who might not have a chance for the day off a chance to come along sometime. :)

Heck yes! I didn't know you had one!

Also FYI I'm headed out to the drags this weekend (so long as it doesn't rain - unlikely) if people want to come watch/meet/catch up/join in let me know.

Its a cheap day $60 to race or $10 to watch as it's find raising for a bigger burnout pad for the track. Just let me know if you're keen. I'll only be out there in the "duckling" but it will still be a fun day :)

Just to dig this up from the dead...

here is a link to one of my favourite sections of road in Tassie!


If a Redline Cruise or trip even is organised this road is a must!
