Your new Tassie to-do list from April through May in 2022.

Feast in the east

8 - 10 April

This April, Tassie’s east will play host to its weekend-long East Coast Harvest Odyssey. The diverse harvest festival features chefs, winemakers, producers and more. This year’s highlight is the Native Bounty Feast, which focuses on Aboriginal culinary traditions.

Hop to it

9 - 10 April

Tassie’s top brewers will come together at Derwent Valley for the Fresh Hop Beer Festival. Here you’ll be able to sample new hops and see how the Aussie beer market is evolving. Home brewers will once again get the chance to enterthe crowd-favourite Home Brew competition and potentially see their creation be crowned best.

Make the change

22 April

Earth Day, held on 22 April, is about inspiring people to enact change. As part of RACT’s 30-year Greater Hobart Mobility Plan, we’re calling on Tasmanians to embrace new mobility options.

Did you know 84% of Tasmanians opt to take a private vehicle to work? Our initial aim in this plan is to achieve a 4% shift in traveller behaviour from private vehicle transport to alternative transport options in the first 10 years. This Earth Day we encourage Tassies to leave the car keys at home and opt for a more earth-friendly alternative.

Lets embrace public transport on Earth Day.

Best from the west

23 - 24 April

Foodies, rejoice! We’re happy to report Tasting Trail Cradle to Coast is launching a new event, TrailGraze. The weekend-long festival will see growers and producers in Tassie’s north west host workshops, behind the- scenes tours, tastings, and guest chef collaborations.

Safari time

8 - 13 May

BMW GS owners, it’s time to rev your engines because the BMW GS Safari is coming to Tassie. It’s been eight long years since the exclusive and all-inclusive event has been hosted on our island state. Riders will spend five days navigating 1700 kilometres of off-road terrain and twisty bitumen roads. Riders will take off from Hobart and ride along both the east and west coasts uncovering hidden riding gems along the way.
