Breathtaking views throughout the Tamar Valley. Stop off at Brady's Lookout for one of the best views in the world. Have a coffee and delicious Tasmanian ice cream at Grindelwald on the way through. Relaxing and enjoyable. Everywhere you look will capture you with its quaintness and simple beauty,

Enjoy the best of both worlds by taking in the scenery of the Tamar Valley on a wine tour. Tassie Pinot Noir is second to none in the World and this is the place to sample it.

Leaving Launceston by either the West or East one can travel North to Bass Straight along the picturesque Tamar River. The river (estuary) ranges from a few hundred metres to a couple of kilometers wide. Lots of country lanes will lead you right to the waters edge. "Olde World" cottages and jetties abound, as do pontoons for getting right out... More

The Tamar Valley never fails to disappoint as a scenic drive and having lots of points of interest, also being one of the main food and wine bowls of the north of the state supplying excellent produce.

I live locally, so guess I am biased, but looking at this region objectively, I see how beautiful it is, and think my self lucky that this region, and in fact the whole of lovely Tasmania, is in my back yard!! The Tamar Valley is so pretty, and driving down both sides of the River, is amazingly lovely, and peaceful... More

Loved the scenery and the vineyards. Loved the beaches at the mouth of the river. Loved that was plenty of little coffee shops along the way.

Take a drive up the east side to Low Head, then back across the Batman Bridge, there's a BBQ park located under it on the east side, visit Beaconsfields Museum. It's a lovely day's outing.

Easy travel to Beauty Point & Georgetown. The Austrian town of Gristelwald was beautiful and the scenery along the way pleasing to the eye.

Visited 5 wineries through a tour group- Tamar Valley Wine Tours. We were able to go as a small group and our guide Jill was a wealth of knowledge. It was really interesting hearing about all aspects of the region and its wineries. Jill was very accommodating taking us to extra wineries than planned and even stopped for photo opportunities....
