Accommodation - Tasmanians

In the history of Blue Derby Pods Ride we have only ever offered our unique accommodation as part of our award winning 3-or 4-day Experiences. The Tasmanian tourism industry is riding on unmarked tracks at the moment, and with 95% of our wonderful clientele coming from interstate or overseas, it has prompted us think outside of the box.

We know Tasmanians love nature and getting into our precious forests, so with the above in mind, we will be offering our facilities as 'accommodation only', for Tasmanians, for selected nights throughout the year. We have always wanted to find a way to pivot our offering so more Tasmanians could experience our Pods, as a 'thank you for supporting us' offering. The current time has given us the opportunity to do just that, and we are grateful for this. Our primary focus (and love) will always be our 3- and 4- Day Experiences, they are the jewel in our crown and are in our opinion, the best way to experience the Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails.

To all those Tasmanians who now plan to stay at our Pods, we have no doubt you will find your stay absolutely wonderful, as we have always said, our Pods are an experience in themselves.

See below for further information on our accommodation, your stay with us, and how you can book.

And lastly, from one Tasmanian to another, thank you for your support.
