  • Tassie 2007

    Another great trip over to Tassie this year for the twelvth time in a row.
    Not much 4wding involved this year but had a great time anyway!
    Some photos.

    Arthurs Lake on a good day


    Arthurs Lake again!


    The Motley Crew


    Kaylee (our hostess with the mostess) has got herself a new Paj. DID Auto shorty and no DPF issues.



    Ladies fashions on Cup Day......and I was the judge!

    Having a fish beside Great Lake.


    One of the many rivers in the area.

    So if you want to have yourselves a blast try the Great Lake Hotel
    Kaylee and Pete own the pub and are fantastic people. Great accommadation and meals and hopefully a future sponsor of the club.

          Depending what time of year you go you can "SHIP" your car for virtually nix. They do some awesome off peak deals on the ferry.

            Yeah you are better off shipping the car!
            We used to fly over and hire 4wd's but the insurance costs for the fourbies got out of hand. It is reasonably priced for just your car but once you start towing a trailer etc they screw you with the price and thats when you shit.
            If you fly over and hire a small car costs are reasonable but you can't get into some good fishing spots. Stay on the tar and you will be ok.
            I recommend taking your own vehicle.

                  Thanks for that Pickle ... we were thinking of taking a Camper Trailer across as well ... I think it's an extra $1200 but if we are there for 2 weeks then we should recoup our costs on accomodation ... assumin we don't freeze!

                      You will have a blast over there Alan. Just need to give you some survival tips for the sailing there and back because I can guarantee you wont be sleeping in those chairs.

                        $1200 over 14 days works out at about $90 a day for accommodation. Depending on how many of you there are, this may or may not be false economy. All of the hotels/van park cabins I stayed in cost me less than $50 p/n and this was at Christmas last year. The opportunity to just drive off the road and set up camp, while not impossible, is far more limited in Tassie than it is in the likes of QLD.

                        So an investigation might be worth it.
