Adventure Racing World Championships 2011, Tasmania

Video streaming by Ustream


Australia's expedition adventure race - held in Tasmania 2006

Preview of the Adventure Racing World Championships 2011 held in Tasmania. The XPD Expedition Race will host the ARWC 2011. Teams of four will trek, kayak, mountain bike and complete roping sections day and night over a 700km course.


After a morning of kayaking, shooting and trekking, the teams mount up on their bikes and head through Gunns Plains. After 20km of riding they descend into the depths of Gunns Plains Caves where the dank, dark and cramped conditions prove problematic for the teams' sense of direction. Finally emerging into open space, the teams take to their bikes again for another gruelling 50km of hill riding. Waiting at the end is the transiton that will lead them into a 60km trek through the harsh Tasmanian wilderness...

Burnie Today

Tasmania is an island state located south east of the Australian mainland. Burnie is Tasmania’s most westerly city, located on the North West Coast about 40 minutes from Devonport. It has a northerly aspect and is nestled around Emu Bay on Bass Strait.

The 20,000 residents enjoy a vibrant shopping district that spills onto the beach for seafood and coffee. Burnie has surprising restaurants and cafés to linger in. It has a dynamic cultural life, galleries, performances, exhibitions and community events.

Fantastic food is made in Burnie like whisky and cheese. The best milk in the world for cheese making is produced in the area. There are well stocked delis to tempt you with gourmet treats.

Burnie’s hills hide impressive gardens and parks, and it is surrounded by beautiful beaches, sparkling water and fresh air. In some areas people live in perfect art deco or federation homes and public spaces featuring buildings by contemporary Tasmanian architects and designers. But there is no escaping the presence of a busy container port, the rail hub or the factory framework lining the highway around Emu Bay on the eastern approach to Burnie. A factory which evolved over 75 years manufacturing high volumes of paper for world markets.

In its hey day "The Pulp" employed 3500 people, and after 75 years of supporting the families of Burnie, the mill finally ceased operation in June 2010.
Burnie is a dynamic city
