The Road Ahead : October 2012
QUEENSLAND'S LARGEST CLUB 35 OCT/NOV 2012 THE ROAD AHEAD DEPARTURE NATIONAL TRAVEL the magic of the sea, clear blue water and white beaches so close to majestic mountains. The main settlement on the peninsula is Coles Bay, and approaching the township you are greeted by the spectacular view of a wide, sweeping beach backed by the impressive Hazards Peaks which rise almost sheer from the water. The four main peaks are solid granite reaching about 500 m high; the colour changes during the day depending on the sun and they are particularly attractive in the late afternoon when they take on a rich red hue. From the saddle on the walking track below Mt Amos, you can look down the wide sweep of Wineglass Bay, one of the most photographed scenes in Australia. NOVEL WAY TO DRIVE THE ISLAND After its sell-out success in 2011, Targa Turismo is on again, from February 22 to March 1 next year. Take a never to be forgotten driving experience with like- minded enthusiasts following some of the stages used in the famous Targa Tasmania tarmac rally. A tour and not a race, Targa Turismo gives you the chance of driving a selection of desirable cars including Porsche, BMW, Audi, VW and MINI, all the while soaking up some of Australia's most stunning scenery.

Beginning and finishing in Hobart, the tour takes in the Grass Tree Hill, Lyell Highway and north-east and north-west Targa stages, as well as other iconic driving roads.
