Trail Bikes and ATVs

Tasmania has some great spots set aside for the responsible use of trail bikes and all-terrain vehicles.

The brochure, Ride Around Tasmania, has information on recreational registration, maps and grid references leading you to some great rides as well as tips on how you can ride safely and minimise your impact.

This guide is a must for anybody who rides a trail bike, four wheel bike or other all terrain vehicle (ATV) for recreation.

The brochure is available [PDF 2.5MB] or you can get yourself a copy of the ‘Ride Around Tasmania’(RAT) booklet at Service Tasmania outlets and some bike shops for approximately $5.
