View Dates & Book

 

The wheels of time turn back over a hundred years as the peaceful village of Evandale in northern Tasmania once again plays host to the Evandale Village Fair and National Penny Farthing Championships.

 

The Penny-Farthing, also known as a high wheel and ordinary, was the first machine to be called a bicycle. It was popular in the 1870s and 1880s, with its large front wheel providing high speeds (owing to it travelling a large distance for every rotation of the legs) and comfort the large wheel provides greater shock absorption.

 

Each February in Evandale Penny-Farthing enthusiasts from around the world converge on the small village for a series of penny-farthing races, including the national championship.

 

Accompanying the Penny Farthings races are a country fair and period themed festival.

 

Enjoy a day filled with entertainment, food, and great competition. Lunch will be at your own expense.

 

Inclusions: Luxury Coach Travel | Morning Tea | Entry Ticket
