Tasmania’s Gone Nuts 101 Adventure Run – 2021 dates TBC

Tasmania’s Gone Nuts 101 Adventure Run will commence on one of Tasmania’s most recognised and visited icons, The Nut, at Stanley, in Tasmania’s North West corner. The race will hug coastline, climb through Rocky Cape National Park and traverse rugged coastal bush and calming temperate rainforest. You will be challenged by diverse landscapes, encounter native wildlife and birds, and witness some of the most spectacular coastlines imaginable. In this part of the world, rolling green farmland drops over cliffs into the pristine waters of Bass Strait. The beaches are also as diverse as they are unique, with sections of long white sandy beaches, small crescent shaped bays and rugged rocky bays formed by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.

Rip Curl West Coast Surf Classic – March, Long Weekend, 2021 TBA

The Rip Curl West Coast Classic is a mobile surfing event held in March at Marrawah and nearby coastal areas. It is Tasmania's premier surfing event.

The Southern Ocean is renowned for producing big swells and each year West Coast Classic surfers find themselves taking on waves from one to six metres in height.   Some years have seen "Hawaiinesque" conditions.

The event features 12 divisions, from super groms to legends, with the main event being the Men's Open division.

The West Coast Classic event has been contested annually for some 30 years.
