Devil’s Corner to host a wild race around Tasmania

Explore the best of Tassie in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure

Tasmanian winery Devil’s Corner has today announced it will host a race to the four corners of Tasmania this winter. 
The Devil’s Corner Lost Shipment Race will see three lucky teams spend nine days traveling around the four corners of Tasmania, starting in the Huon Valley in the south before venturing onto Smithton in the north-west (via Cradle Mountain); Bridport in the north-east; and finishing off at the newly reinvigorated Devil’s Corner cellar door, located along the popular Great Eastern Drive.

The ‘Amazing Race’ style event will give race-goers the unique opportunity to explore Tasmania and its origins like never before, embracing the wild in a series of once-in-a-lifetime activities at each stop.

  • Huon Valley: Take in the picturesque sights of the Huon Valley from the comfort of your own private sailing tour, cruising along the Huon River with tasty local treats and wine. Swap the water for the treetops as you journey across the Tahune Forest Airwalk – a cantilevered bridge suspended 40 metres above the Huon River – before heading underground to discover the mysterious labyrinth of Hasting Caves and swim in the thermal pools.
  • Smithton (via Cradle Mountain): ‘Dine with the Devil’ at Devils@Cradle – a unique sanctuary and conservation facility for the threatened Tasmanian Devil. Get up close and personal with these extraordinary animals before enjoying dinner reservations at nearby Cradle Mountain Lodge. Then, experience a full-day, four-wheel drive adventure that will take you to the remote ‘Edge of The World’ region and Tarkine National Park, deep in the north-west coast of Tasmania – home to the second largest expanse of cool temperate rainforest in the world.
  • Bridport: Take the plunge at the original and Australia’s only wood-fired Floating Sauna at Lake Derby. Race-goers can reconnect with nature while enjoying the traditional Finnish wood-fired sauna and cold plunge directly off a pontoon into the fresh waters of Lake Derby before racing to the last stop.
  • Devil’s Corner: A rugged corner of east coast Tasmania is the race’s final destination where hazard meets haven and the Devil’s Corner vineyards meet the sea. Uniquely positioned on the edge of the coast, Devil’s Corner’s recently expanded, award-winning cellar door site is both extraordinary and wild in equal measure.

At Devil’s Corner, race-goers can climb the tower and take in the view across Moulting Lagoon to The Hazards mountain range and Freycinet National Park before indulging in a premium and elevated wine tasting experience in the Devil’s Den. Sip on Australia’s favourite Pinot Noir and other cool-climate favourites while feasting on freshly caught local seafood and pizzas from on-site producers The Fishers and Tombolo.

The race takes place from the 6th-14th July with the pre-registration period cutting off on the 5th June. Those interested in joining an unforgettable adventure to the four corners of Tasmania to find Devil’s Corner’s Lost Shipment can do so at thelostshipment.com.au.
