Tasmanian Trail - Support and Accommodation

Tasmanian Trail

The Tasmanian Trail starts in Devonport on the north coast of Tasmania and completes at Dover on the south coast. A distance of 483 km. A trail providing a soft adventure and the chance to appreciate Tasmanian diversity

Hawthorn Lodge is directly on the Tasmanian trail in the village of Bushy Park. A popular stopping off place for walkers and cyclists using the trail.  We offer users of the Tasmanian Trail a number of options to support if you are cycling or walking the full or part trail.

Tasmanian Trail Full Package

Our full package with 5 nights accommodation offers local support and all transfers with bicycles if using.

We pick you up at Hobart airport and then stay with us at Bushy Park. A chance to pack your gear and store items not needed.  We provide dinner and after breakfast the next morning will transfer you to the start in Devonport arriving around 10.30 so gives plenty of time to have an easy first day to Latrobe if walking or further and Sheffield if cycling.

During stages 11,12 and 13 we provide 3 nights accommodation and transfers each morning and night between Ellendale and New Norfolk. This allows you do some sections without carrying gear! Some guests take one of the nights as a full rest day. This allows you chance to restock and sort out before doing the last section to Dover.

We then meet you at the end in Dover and back to Hawthorn lodge for a well earned dinner and rest. The next morning we transfer you to Hobart or Hobart airport.

Tasmanian Trail Support Crew

Tasmanian Trail

You will need to join the Tasmania Trail Association to obtain a copy of the latest guidebook and the key for some locked gates. The fee is very nominal and helps provide funds to maintain the Tasmania Trail.

The trail is signposted and the guidebook has GPS points that make navigation easy. Parts of the trail are in state forests with some on private land. There are deviations where cycling is hard and easier to take the road. Sections that are on the road use quiet roads with little traffic.

The best time of the year to do the Tasmanian trail is between October and April as the days are longer and the ground much drier.

Many small towns and villages are passed that provide some accommodation. Some sections are remoter and a tent is a good idea.

Conditions

Accommodation at Hawthorn Lodge is based on rooms that use a shared bathroom and upstairs. Upgrades to en suite rooms are available. Bookings are confirmed once a 50% deposit has been received. On the full package dinner is not provided for the 3 nights in the middle of the trip as we offer on those nights a light meal option where each dish is $10 and on Friday and Saturday a free transfer to the local pub. Likewise dinner is not provided on the three night package but available from our menu.  We do stock beer, wine and cider that is available for non residents.
