Tasmanian Trails Association
The Audax Club of Australia acknowledges that the Raid Tasmania would not be possible without the assistance of the Tasmanian Trails Association and the Tasmanian Government.

A gate key, which is used to pass through locked gates protecting stock on private land along the route, is recommended for participants. This saves you carrying your bike over each gate.

Also required for this Raid is the Tasmanian Trail Guide Book, available for order on the entry form. It can also be purchased at some book stores in major Australian cities. It carries details routes notes and maps.
