The Tasmanian Liberal Government's goal is for Tasmania to be the environmental tourism capital of the world.

Tasmanian E-bike Adventures is a new premium experience on the Forestier Peninsula which will further enhance our reputation in eco-tourism.

Visitors will explore our natural wilderness on state-of-the-art electric mountain bikes while gaining an appreciation of Tasmania's first people and early European history through storytelling and interpretation.

Tasmanian E-bike Adventures showcases much of what is great about our island – our rich and diverse cultural heritage, our stunning natural beauty and our premium food and beverages.

The latest visitor survey shows demand for Aboriginal tourism experiences is on the rise, visitation to the Tasman Peninsula is up by 14 per cent and mountain biking is a real growth market for Tasmania, so this latest attraction ticks all the right boxes.

The Tasmanian Government will continue to strongly support our tourism industry as one of our great competitive strengths, which drives our economy and supports local jobs right across the state.
