We drove the Tamar

It would take weeks to explore this part of the world. Get off the new highway and use the old highway and meander along the river beside old houses.

So much to see you could spend days lost in the valley very good signage along the wine trail with all towns branching off highway. The roads were good and our pick was bay of fires but Windermere was so quaint. A must is rosevear for lunch

Maybe I'm lucky to be able to compare different kind of landscape, but Tamar Valley wasn't so suggestive like I read before travelling through. Anyway we spent nice hours and we tried some wines, so no bad to be in Tasmania!

The tamar valley wineries are just a short drive from central Launceston. Great cold climate crisp semillion blancs. In addition the food scene has risen to the tourist challenge as well and there are some great places to dine where great food is matched perfectly with delicious wines. This is a thumbs up from me. 👍 👍 👍 👍

We decided to "accomplish our mission" of visiting the wineries of the Tamar Valley in two parts. As we were heading to Launceston from the north-west we decided to drive down the western side of the Tamar which afforded wonderful views of the various vineyards and also, in places, views of the river. We stopped at several of the smaller,... More

Some of the best wine in Australia. All the wineries are well marked in the maps you can get from any Tourist office or Hotel. It is best to convince someone else to drive so you can really enjoy the wine!

Lovely scenery as you drive between wineries. Wine Route is marked with signage and a wine region booklet is available from some Tourist Info centres.

The valley was a lovely drive through rolling hills, green fields filled with cows and sheep and sleepy little villages and towns. It is just 50 km from Launceston to the mouth of the Tamar River and takes no time at all but allow plenty of time to stop and see the sights. We particularly liked Beauty Point...very picturesque.

East Tamar to Georgetown and Low Head very scenic, vineyards and river views. Low Head lighthouse worth a visit. West Tamar beautiful. Historic and famous gold mine at Beaconsfield. Brady's Lookout a must for amazing river, vineyards, mountain views. And more!

Loved the different wineries, it was great people are very friendly and willing to help. Different variety of wines , if you like sweet wine like me you might not find what you like easily. Josef Chromey was one of the best places we have visited, very close to Launceston airport should not be mist, dine in and get 10... More
