Launceston is one of the prettiest cities in Tasmania, not so much hustle and bustle. The Architecture is very similar to Adelaide and we have been told both cities had the same Architect. As we live looking over this beautiful river one never gets bored...More

If you are staying in Launceston for a few days then a drive along both sides of this river is going to excite. Pleanty of wineries to tempt the taste buds.

My wife and I did a trip down the river with a small group of people. The day was calm so the ride was smooth. A very friendly knowledgeable guide/pilot. A lot to see and lots of history.

Very impressive river, easy to follow until it heads out into the wilds of Bass strait, watched a big tanker sail on down the river

I took a boat ride along the Tamar River to see the Gorge and it was breathtaking, quiet and the views were great.

What better way to see the Tarar River than by a wonderful cruise. The River is unbelievable winding around breathtaking scenery at every turn. The history by the skipper is interesting. A must see to explore.

The river is amazing and quite longer and wider than I expected. There are bits to see and do along the length of the river and unfortunately I didn't have enough time to do much.

Did river cruise which included Cataract Gorge, very informative. Would have liked the two and half hour cruise, but not running that day
