A business offering 4wd Tagalong Tours in Tasmania. Most tours are based around the North East of Tassie and also the West Coast, although custom trips to cater for other areas can be organised. We will also be looking to offer 4wd Training Courses via an RTO. More on that later.....

More information can be found on our website; www.tasoffroadadventures.com.au

We also have a Facebook page; www.facebook.com/tasmanianoffroadadventures?ref=hl

Our Mission
Our mission is to ensure your Tasmanian 4wd experience is as packed full of fun, action and adventure as possible, in a safe environment.

Our Guides
Our guides have many years experience in camping and 4wdriving. In addition our qualifications include Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment, Accreditation in 4wd and Recovery Techniques, Defensive Driving, First Aid and Chainsaw Operations.

Our Tours
Our tours are family friendly and we encourage and cater for all families, singles, blokes, groups, clubs and honeymooners(!). Our Adventure tours are designed for you to see and do as much possible and to get the most out your the time you have with us. We do not carry fare paying passengers, we prefer to provide first class, professional and friendly Tagalong tours. This allows you to experience everything that 4wdriving in Tasmania has to offer, all in your own pride and joy!

All of our tours are self catering and are vehicle based camping style. In other words, you provide you own food and camping gear (tent, swag etc). This helps to keep costs to a minimum. There are some extras that will need to be paid for before and along the trips - in addition to our costs. These consist of camping fees (at some overnight stops, usually $5-$10), Arthur Pieman Conservation Area Pass ($30). Once a trip is booked we will email you a pack that will include all information that you will need.

Tours run from October through to the end of March. Tours are available outside of these times by appointment, but be aware that it rains a lot in Tasmania! Many tracks, particularly on the West Coast are not passable after rain.

Our Trip Ratings
To keep things simple we rate our trips as Easy, Moderate or Hard. Regardless of the Trip Rating, all vehicles must have rated recovery points front and rear and at least a snatch strap.

Easy is suitable for a standard 4wd that has low range and drivers with some 4wd experience. Note that even the easy tracks that we drive have over growth and it is likely that your vehicle will get scratched.

Moderate is suitable for a modified 4wd with low range, a 50mm suspension lift and at least All Terrain tyres. Drivers should have some 4wdriving experience.

Hard is only suitable for well modified 4wd vehicles. As a minimum vehicles should have low range, a 50mm suspension lift, at least All Terrain tyres, a snorkel and a water blind. Winches, bullbars, diff locks and scrub bars are all recommended, but not totally necessary. You must be an experienced 4wdriver to do these tours!

When booking a trip you will be supplied with a detailed information pack that will out the requirements for yourself and your vehicle. If we don't consider that your experience or your 4wd is up to the task of your chosen tour we will certainly let you know at this time, not once you get here!

Camper Trailers are not suitable for any of our tours.

Safety
Our guides use GPS satellite navigation and carry an EPIRB and Satellite phone for emergencies. A Safety Management Program is implemented on all trips and all participants are informed of this at the beginning of the trip.

Policies
All of our policies, including Safety, 4wdriving, Environmental, Vehicle Maintenance, Refund, and Privacy will be supplied in full in our information pack upon booking an Adventure Tour.
