THE TRIP

The Trip Of a Lifetime

Expedition Overview

Coast Around Tasmania is an epic 9-day / 1500 kilometre circumnavigation of Tasmania’s rugged coastline on Personal Water Craft (more commonly referred to as jetskis) to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention.

In 2022, commencing with a road trip from Queensland, the team will be heading to Melbourne to catch the Spirit of Tasmania to Devonport with PWC’s in tow.  We will then travel to Hobart which will be the start and finish point for the expedition. Making our way anticlockwise we will ride an average of 170 kilometres per day for nine days total (not including any weather lay-days) covering some of the most spectacular coastlines Australia has to offer.

Each evening we will be pulling into port to rest and reflect on the accomplishments of the day, and recharge and plan for the day ahead.

By The Numbers

Starting October 2021, we will commence training for this epic adventure, testing machine and equipment and building our capacity and competence to complete this goal. This whole process and adventure will be documented and shared with our audience and community, as well as shared and promoted amongst our supporter, sponsor & charity partner networks.

This expedition has been over 4 1/2 years in the making. What originally started as an idea between schoolmates has now turned into the adventure of a lifetime with the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause along the way.
