Only a short drive up the east bank of the Tamar past the suburb of Riverside. We visited at 5:00pm on a summer's night. The walk is a series of boardwalks amongst the reeds and silt islands. Fantastic for watching bird life. The walk goes out to Tamar Island which is an elevated hill in the middle of the river... More

The Tamar Valley is a good place for car trips from Launceston. We did two - one to Georgetown and the Low Head Lighthouse. The lighthouse is attractive and you can do a tour but there's nothing much else in Georgetown. On our second trip we went to Seahorse World at Beauty Point which was a 45 minute drive. There...

We had a lovely time on the river with Callum steering the boat and providing the commentary. It was a four hour trip but it flew by. Morning tea was muffins lunch was sandwiches. Don't sneer . They were delicious! Tea and coffee was available all day. The highlight of the day was when we went right up into the... More

Drive down the East Tamar Highway across the Batman Bridge and back up the West Tamar Highway to Launceston. Wineries, strawberry farm, Bradeys lookout, just some of the things to stop at on the way. Scenery is amazing! Great day trip.

The Tamar Valley is 'home' to more than 40 vineyards...of all sizes. Some have cellar doors, some don't but if you visit you will often be served by the owner or a member of the family. Most vineyards have great views and they're all different. A 3 day tour around the different areas would be a 'must do' for any... More
