Tamar River

From downtown Launceston it is possible to access an easy walking path that provides views of the river as well as the harbor and industrial sites along it.

we were luck enough to be in Launceston on a beautiful winters day the sun was shining and we went for a stroll along the river. It is so beautiful and lots of interesting things to see along the way, lots of bird life.

This has a great selection of fine furniture and woodwork. The quality is amazing, the best I have ever seen. This is certainly worth looking at and if you want you can buy most things in the attached shop.

There are plenty of options for a meal, coffee or a drink. Plenty of establishments with history to tell, the boardwalk is a new development and has been well done to incorporate a... More

We walked along the river near our hotel (Riverside Inn) and saw great birdlife, a stunning park and waters edge trails which I believe lead all the way into town. We could have packed a lunch (and thermos) and spent the whole day exploring with a budget of $0.

While it can be smelly at low tide, and you would not get in the water south of Gravelly beach. the Tamar on a clear blue skied day is a beautiful place to cruise around.
