Fresh from the 2017 National Meeting back in April, it’s time to start looking forward to next year’s Tasmanian meeting. The organising committee looking after the event has just sent out their second bulletin for the event, which includes a lot of important information about planning your trip.
Read on for the details, and prepare for a great meeting! And make sure to stay tuned to the MG Car Club of Tasmania website for the most up-to-date details on the event.
2018 National Meeting – Bulletin #2
It is time to start planning your trip to Tasmania for the 2018 National Meeting.
The Cradle Coast (North West) of Tasmania offers many picturesque day drives from the major centres of Devonport, Ulverstone, Penguin and Burnie. So as part of your planning for next year, think about staying a few days before or after the National Meeting weekend and enjoy this wonderful part of Tasmania that we call home. Enjoy a MG drive on some great driving roads, experience Paradise, that’s a little place up the road from NoWhere Else. And as if that isn’t enough you could always drop into Lower Crackpot at the Promised Land. For real, look it up!!
There are links on our website to websites that promote the appealing attractions of the Cradle Coast region.
Spirit of Tasmania
For most of our mainland visitors (yes that is what we call you) there is only one way to get your car to Tasmania, and that is sailing on the Spirit of Tasmania. We have been able to get a Special Event booking page set up for the meeting, where attendees can make their bookings and not only get the best fares available, but also a small added discount. If you have already booked your Spirit crossing you can have it reviewed by contacting the call centre on 1800 634 906 and mention our event.
There is an accommodation review spreadsheet on our website. Accommodation is available in Shearwater, Port Sorell, Latrobe, Devonport, Ulverstone, Penguin and Burnie. The Cradle Coast towns are linked by a dual carriageway 110 km/h highway, travel time between adjacent centres is less than 15 minutes.
Devonport Car Show
The Devonport Car Show is the biggest car show held in Tasmania each year, in 2018 it will be held on Sunday the 25th of March, on the banks of the Mersey River in Devonport. ie the Sunday before the National Meeting. For 2018 the organisers are offering to make MG the feature marque of the show. This will be excellent public coverage for the following Easter weekend. You can check out the Devonport Car Show details on their webpage: http://www.devonportmotorshow.com/ and register your interest in displaying at next year’s event.
