Escape To Tasmania

November 6th - 13th, 2019


Tasmania has arguably the best Porsche Driving Roads in Australia, hence Porsche Cars Australia host a Targa Tasmania event every year. The chosen Drive route encompasses many of the same roads as Targa Tasmania. The drive offers stunning natural scenery, challenging twisty roads our beloved Porsche’s are designed for to enable a great driver’s experience. Tasmania offers spectacular natural beauty, delicious fresh seafood, which will be all complemented with high quality accommodation shared with your fellow club members over the 8 days of touring.

The event is not only for the enthusiastic driver, time has been allowed for participants to enjoy all the delights of Tasmania. There is flexibility in the schedule, if you wish to extend your stay at one of our overnight destinations to soak up what’s on offer. If you wish to arrive in Tasmania before the main group, please feel free to do so. Simply join us in Devonport on the morning of the 7th or wave goodbye to the main group on the 13th to extend you stay.

The reason for the expression of interest booking is to allow us to have an understanding of the level of interest in such an event which is a first for Porsche Club NSW. Please factor in a realistic budget for this event which I estimate to be approx. ($3300 per couple, $2900 single). This may vary slightly depending on numbers. Hotel bookings and Ferry Crossing will be made by members based on our negotiated package rates.

Schedule for Event:

On Wednesday Evening the 6th November we board the Spirit of Tasmania in Melbourne to enjoy a leisurely over night cruise to Devonport. Members may wish to travel together to Melbourne or make their way independently. I am also investigating premium transport options if you don’t wish to Drive to Melbourne saving time or putting the extra K’s on the odometer.
