THE FOOD! get on that food trail and don't regret it. Eat loads of cheese and raspberries and ice cream and drink all of the wine and be merry. The beaches are nice too.

Lets go to Launceston and do some wineries in the Tamar Valley in winter..... should be great right?? WRONG! No matter what is advertised and even what signs are hanging in the front driveways of some of these wineries, its winter and apparently they hibernate. I don't think they have ANY idea of what tourism is and how they should... More

The Tamar valley is a scenic drive, full of wineries, and ridiculous vistas. Easily done in a day, and I would highly recommend taking a picnic, unless you're going to eat at a winery, as the towns are small, and few and far between.

You cant go wrong trying all the different wineries. You might get on a bus as there is a drive to get to many of these

This is a full or half day drive from Launceston. The Georgetown Tourist Centre is a good start for local information and to purchase local timber bowls. The Low Head lighthouse is quite spectacular as well as a visit to the Maritime Museum. At the museum cafe we had the most succulent scallop pies made at the cafe. Coming home... More

Went for midday lunch and had the two course special with a glass of wine included. Fantastic value and the food was fabulous. Had the gnocchi and was the best I have had. Super soft but beautiful flavours. Beautiful views and great wine. Fabulous value for money.

The Tamar Valley extends from Launceston for about 50 kms north up to George Town. The views along the way are fantastic and there are some nice places to stop and view or have something to eat along the way.

Travel from Launceston to Greens Beach via Rosevears. Many, many vineyards providing tastings of their great wines. Visit Grindlewald Swiss Village and see where Matthew Brady had his last stand at picturesque Brady's Lookout. Visit the Beaconsfield Mine and park opposite showing the old Flowery Gully Schoolhouse. On to Beauty Point to visit Platypus House and Seahorse World. Further along... More
