Targa Tasmania is a genuine, red-blooded motorsport event. 

Inspired by its namesake, Targa Florio, it is a tarmac rally designed for the true motoring enthusiast.

Targa Tasmania also draws concepts directly from the best features of the Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes and the Tour de Corse to create the world’s largest Tarmac Rally with a cross section of marvellously restored classic vehicles as well as the latest in grand touring and sports vehicles.

While built on traditions, Targa Tasmania continues to renew itself and revolutionise the world of tarmac rallying. You will get to experience some of the world’s ultimate driving roads through the rugged World Heritage wilderness of Tasmania, where some of the most exciting challenges are waiting to be conquered.


Targa Tasmania is your passport to driving your car through some of the most beautiful, yet technically challenging sealed roads, testing your driving capability and the tenacity of your service crew. Experience the primal thrill of tackling turn after turn, the exhilaration of driving your pride and joy, as it was designed, on roads that are otherwise never closed.

If racing isn’t for you, but you love cars, the Targa Tour was designed to allow people to enjoy Targa without the pressure of competition. Created to allow people to drive their cars on closed roads, the tour provides a safe and structured environment where you can drive at speeds not normally allowed on open roads.

Targa Tasmania travels over 2000kms in 6 days. Starting in the northern part of the island, Launceston is one of the few cities on the planet designed around a gorge. The course will then take you past beach-lined coasts and World Heritage-listed Mountains. Along the way, you will pass welcoming farm-gate producers, cellar doors and restaurants specialising in local produce, before finishing on Hobart’s picturesque waterfront.
