THE RaTTAToT TOUR
(Ramsay's Terrific Tag-a-long Adventure Tour of Tasmania)


For 23November 2001


Report by Haydn and Nan

Launceston - Looking, Laughing, Lunching and a trip to Longford.

Launceston hosts the national auto museum so an early morning start saw everybody checking out some of Australia's best motorcycle and car history.

Then it was off to Cataract Gorge for a BBQ lunch and cake to celebrate Jan's birthday. The gorge is a stones throw from the centre of town and really worth a visit. The groups went in different directions - some stayed in town, some returned to the Tamar. Our group visited a pub in the town of Longford which is the centrepiece of the famous Longford racing circuit of the 1960's.
Finding a photograph of Doug Whiteford racing his Datsun 2000, hanging above the bar made the trip very worthwhile. Then back to Launceston via Carrick where we found a wonderful craft shop with everything made of copper.

It was hard to believe or contemplate than this was our last night in Tassie.
