The Tamar valley drive is well worth doing. There are lots of places to turn off to get closer to the river. The options for coffee and food along the way are many, as well as wine tasting opportunities.

If being inspired to buy property on this beautiful waterway is any guide, I guess it struck a chord with us. Serene, varying aspects, varied activities, no crowds and any number of wineries with restaurants to enjoy. What's not to love!

Spent a lovely afternoon just following the river through the valley up to the coast, stop off at Beaconsfield for lunch or afternoon tea. Beautiful area. Careful late in the afternoon when the wombats are often seen feeding by the side of the road!

They are quite close to each other. Cataract G is slightly closer to Hobart and would make a good stop before going to the Tamar valley.
