Tasmania

It was Decemeber 2020 and in Australia at least, we seem to have gotten Covid under control. We couldn’t leave the country but at least all state borders were open and we were “free to move about the country.” We’ve always wanted to ride around Tasmania but honestly we weren’t planning on doing so 2020. But really, who out there didn’t have their 2020 plans turned upside down? Since we weren’t working, we had more time than one might normally book for a ride around Tassie but that just meant we could see more of the backroads. See below for the daily bog of all the hidden Tassie gems that we found.
