The Tour of Tasmania is a cycling road race contested annually in Tasmania, Australia. Created in 1996, the race formed part of the calendar of the Union Cycliste International from 1997 to 2002. The race was not contested the 2001, 2003 and 2004, it reappeared in 2005, but was not integrated with the UCI Oceania Tour. The 2017 edition of the race was won by Lionel Mawditt of InForm Tineli.[1]

There have been several different previously-contested races since 1930, antecedents of the current Tour of Tasmania.
