Peculiar pods offer spectacular adventure


Ever wanted to camp in the middle of a mountain bike trail?

Now you can, thanks to the innovative new 3-day tour Blue Derby Pods Ride. Accomodation 'pods' are inserted via helicopter into the track, and 8 guests are taken on a 3 day tour of riding, eating and adventure in the Tasmanian bushland.

Brian chats live from Derby with Blue Derby Pods Ride manager Tara Howell about this exciting new experience.

"You feel like you're really in the bush because you lie back in the pods in the evening and you're looking up to the quintessential Tasmanian bush setting, the stars are behind you, it's really gorgeous," Ms Howell says.
