Great Escapade 2013 Tasmania - Promo from Orsino Media on Vimeo.
This year, the team from Orsino Media took a fresh approach to the ride documentary. This documentary is something really special - it follows riders as they discover the rich history, culture and story of Tasmania. After all – it’s Tasmania you went to experience!
Beginning with the Chinese mining 'Trail of the Tin Dragon', riders retrace significant periods of Australian history as they pedal down the East Coast, where whaling was once a thriving trade. The riders then head through the bushfire burnt town of Dunalley, ending in the notorious Port Arthur.
Meet inspirational cyclists who battled the undulating terrain along with their own personal struggles. They end with new hope, renewed vigour and an everlasting camaraderie with their fellow travellers. Discover Tasmania upon the wheels of adventure in The Isle of Inspiration.
To purchase the documentary, please visit Orsino Media.
2. Scenic Photos Compilation
For only $45.00, we are offering you over 150 digital scenic photos. You can preview the photos in our scenic photo gallery, and if you’d like, you can purchase individual files for $15.00 each. The photos cover the whole ride, and so if you didn’t have quite enough time to pull out you own camera – chances are that we did.
3. Ride Photos
How will you remember your experience? Our photographers were out in force on the Great Escapade Tasmania, and we took photos of you in various spots over the ride. You can view all the photos at Orsino Media.
How to find your photos
As you passed one of our photographers, they had a large clock and a sign asking you to remember the time. That time is key to you finding your photos on our system. All photo names directly correlate to the date and time you passed our photographer. For example:
130211_1146_1172.jpg was taken on 11/02/13 (reverse the first group of numbers), and at 11:46am (the second group of numbers). T
he third group of numbers is not important, but if you are recording your photo numbers for future reference, make sure you record the whole 14 digit sequence.
For queries, please contact Orsino media on 03 9421 3978 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Celebrating 25 years of Tasmanian food, wine, beer and entertainment, Festivale attracts thousands of visitors to Launceston every February.
The secluded and spectacular Wineglass Bay has been voted by several travel authorities to be of the ten best beaches in the world. Stand in wonder at the pink granite mountains rising straight from the sea to form this magnificent sheltered waterway.
Port Arthur is steeped in history and is one of Australia’s most important heritage sites. Riders and volunteers were treated as bronze pass ticket holders for the Saturday, Sunday and Monday, giving them access to many of the famous attractions and activities. And on the final night of the ride, riders were treated to a farewell celebratory dinner within the historic site on the grassed area close to the old Penitentiary.
Bay of Fires
