Loved it all, wanted to stay longer. We saw some fantastic sights. Ran out of time to see the museum and brewery, which was a disappointment but it gives us an excuse to return.

A never to be forgotten exploration of the prettiest valley and little hamlets. Not many coffee shops or cafes but the Rosevears Tavern is the BEST place for lunch or Dinner. Take your camera. The shots are breath taking. I love this part of the world.

We drove ourselves through the beautiful picturesque Tamar valley. You follow signs to the vineyards which are lovely. The only downside is a lot are by appointment so pick up a brochure so you don't get caught out.

The second day we visited... More

So much to see and do in this area! It is so picturesque, and lots of different wineries to visit, although check beforehand that they're not closed (on certain days/in certain periods during the year). Make sure you visit the Tamar Valley Art Shack!

All along the highway are signs for the winieries in the region, just check during winter months if they're open or not as some are closed.

Start at Launceston head down the West Tamar Highway to Beauty Point and Greens Beach stopping at Legana, Exeter and all wineries in between. Return to Georgetown via the Batman Bridge and tour the East Tamar region for more renowned wineries ending back in Launceston after a day well spent

A spectacular trip up one side and down the other with a visit to Beaconsfield where there is a museum set up after the mine accident. A lot of detail has been set up and it was an easy place to spend a bit of time. The countryside is lovely and it changes quite a bit.
