I'm moving to Tasmania in the new year and was wondering if there are any recommendations for mechanics in the Hobart area.

Hello Lawrence, I will ask around and see with what I come up with.
I know there is a good service place in Launceston but that's 2 hrs north of Hobart....I'll see what I can come up with and get back to you ;o))

Lawrence, there was an embryonic group starting up in the Isle some years back but they seem to have died. I'll check the register!

Bill, the RROC in Tasmania is amalgamated with Victoria because of the small numbers.

Max/ I grew up in Hobart and left when I was thirty to come to Canberra.. The Oatlands advice I'm sorry escapes me except I seem to remember the Mason-Dickson line. I built a house in Howrah and was there for the building of the elevated Derwent River Bridge and remembered well its destruction some years later. I remember the fires that demolished half of South Hobart. Since I have just passed the 80 mark it's a wonder I remember anything!!

Hahahaaa....the old North-South rivalry still exists

The 'Mason-Dixon Line' is at the 42nd parallel....hence the oatlands gates close at five joke.
My wife and I were on our honeymoon during the 1975 bidge disaster....an event that completely changed Hobart and led to the building of the second bridge crossing up river with the Bowen bridge.
I used to quite enjoy crossing the old 'Floating Bridge'...a very clever design by the same bloke
who was head engineer for the HEC....now THAT'S stretching the old grey cells!
