Local Attractions

If you want to make a weekend of the event, bring your family and/or friends and visit some of our world class local attractions.


Cradle Mountain National Park - we know we will be visiting it briefly during our ride but you can easily spend a whole day there.

The Wilderness Gallery, a unique purpose-built showcase for environmental photography, is located at Cradle Mountain, adjacent to Cradle Mountain Chateau. See their website

Tasmazia and the Village of Lower Crackpot, Promised Land. A world class maze complex and more. For more information visit their website

Sheffield - Town of Murals. A journey to Tasmania's Outdoor Art Gallery will lead you to 50 historic outdoor murals in this quaint country town. Take the "Story of the Sheffield Murals" self-guided audio tour (available for hire from the Kentish Visitor Information Centre) and immerse yourself in the story of how a typical Tasmanian town facing rural decline succeeded in becoming a wonderful outdoor art gallery!

Sheffield has developed into a hub for fine arts and crafts people. Studio-galleries with woodcraft, glass and ceramics, are dotted around the region. At the Working Art Space in Albert St (follow the mosaic pathway across King George's Park) and the On-Trak Gallery at the Visitor Information Centre a group of local artists displays their paintings and other artwork and demonstrate their skills for visitors.

Redwater Creek Steam and Heritage Society, Sheffield - unfortunately they are only open for train rides on the first weekend of the month but you can come again another time to visit this attraction. See their website.

Railton - Town of Topiary - find all the fine examples of topiary dotted around Railton.
