For a fun day out featuring novelty races and a host of great entertainment, head to the Evandale Village Fair and National Penny Farthing Championships later this month.
This is a popular annual event and when it comes to antique bicycle racing the action does not come better than this, with an extensive program for fans, friends and family members to enjoy throughout the day.
Penny Farthing enthusiasts will gather from far and wide to climb onto their high seats and peddle for glory over the specially-designed triangular circuit.
Market stalls, clowns, music, vintage car displays, cycling memorabilia and plenty more will be on offer in the surrounding streets and parks of this ordinarily peaceful village.
For the kids there are pony rides, puppet shows and some fun cycle races – but they will have to spend a few more years growing before attempting to mount an old Penny Farthing.
The fair takes place on Saturday February 25 between 10:00 and 16:00 and it costs nothing to come along and enjoy the country carnival atmosphere.
Evandale is an easy 15-minute drive from Launceston in the north of Tasmania.
