Apple Islanders


Formed in 2000, the Apple Islanders are the oldest Auswide Branch in Tasmania and are based in Hobart.
If you are interested in finding out what we are about then please come and join one of our monthly rallies, usually held on the second weekend of the month. Meet us and find out more. There is no obligation to join.

We visit a range of venues across Tasmania. There are bush and beach camps especially during the warmer months and sites with a hall or similar facility during the cooler months.

Activities at rallies are designed to provide something for all members, with the emphasis on fun and relaxation.
In 2014 we held our first "safari", staying at 5 sites over 6 nights.

We are not a large club which helps to keep that friendly feeling. Attendance at rallies (which is optional) varies from around 20 vans down to half a dozen in Winter when many of our members are enjoying mainland travels.
