Burnie Council backs newest Targa rally
Tasmania’s newest motorsport event, Targa Hellyer Gorge, has received a major boost with Burnie City Council signing on as the event’s major partner.
Burnie City Council has committed a significant amount of sponsorship for the inaugural Targa Hellyer Gorge, to be held on February 7.
The brand new event is designed to give first time drivers a taste of real Targa competition on one of Targa's most legendary stages, enabling them to learn what it takes to tackle the demanding week-long Targa Tasmania (27
April – 2 May, 2015).
It has also attracted more experienced competitors keen for a pre-Targa Tasmania hit out.
“Burnie City Council welcomes this new event and is very pleased to be a sponsor of the 2015 Targa Hellyer Gorge event.” Mayor Anita Dow said.
“We acknowledge the economic and community benefits this event will bring to our vibrant city.”
Rally further into Tasmania's North West!
Run the well-known and legendary Targa road of Hellyer Gorge this February and rally further into Tasmania’s North West to discover why Tasmania triumphs in Lonely Planet’s Best for 2015 with these Wild Wilderness Escapes.
North West Tasmania has a rawness about it. Much of the place has been left to just be. The Gordon River, the Tarkine, Corinna; these are unpretentious patches of our island that look
the same as they always have. Head for these parts and get to know Tasmania’s wild personality
and those who claim it as home turf including the Tasmanian devil.
1. Trail off into the Tarkine
There are places that have the power to move you. The Tarkine is one. Venture off on a four or six day walk with Tarkine Trails beneath a canopy of ancient myrtles and see how the Tarkine talks to you. Take the coastal trail, dotted with Aboriginal heritage and hidden coves or opt for a journey where day walks past giant fern trees, waterfalls and sassafras are rewarded with a nightly return to Tiger Ridge base camp.
