This event is CLOSED. Registrations ceased on 29-Sep-2019

This is a limited capacity event. Registration numbers are capped to 36 participants.

Event price is $220.00.


The bad news is the Tiger Hunt has closed. The better news is we have a standby list with only one name. It costs nothing to take an option on anything that opens up. Contact details are at the bottom.


Friday, Feb 7 to Sunday, Feb 16, 2020.

The Tiger Hunt is an 8 day tour of Tasmania bookended by overnight sailings on the Spirit. Hunters are issued a guiding itinerary and are required to make their own accommodation and Spirit arrangements independently. You can follow the tour closely, or loosely in a custom plan that suits your interests, budget and stamina.

The event is capped at 36 riders. Pillions are excluded from the cap and must register for a separate event. Riders, please register for the main event first as you are subject to the count of 36 bikes.

A registration deposit has been set at $220 for riders and $200 for pillions. It will be applied later to a spread of things including breakfast at our initial briefing in Devonport, Bruny Island and Corinna ferries, our Tiger Hunt Dinner in Hobart, a group dinner in Queenstown on Day 7 and a pre-ordered lunch on Day 8. A custom refund on any of these items is available until December 15 should you vary your itinerary.

Registration this year also includes an event T shirt – available in a choice of red or black and based on the popular bike matrix design of 2013.

Trip Notes will be issued at the close of registration. They contain full itinerary detail and stay recommendations. Hunters are encouraged to act promptly once received.

A contact list will be distributed within the group to assist interaction and sharing initiatives. The default is you are on the list...please advise promptly if you want your email or mobile withheld as the list will go out in the first email.

A standby list will be created in the event that demand exceeds places.  The contact for this and other queries is Geoff Salmon: gsalmon@bigpond.net.au or 0408 533152.

Tally Ho!
