Loved the Tamar valley. We only dedicated one day to the wineries and managed to squeeze in around 6. There are so many amd you could easily spend much more time down there. Loads of random little things to do along the way too. Would recommend Goaty Hill wines!

Great place to visit. We only allowed ouselves 3 days for Launceston and the Tamar Valley, we should have taken 5 days. Some beautiful areas in and around the Tamar Valley. We were very impressed with the Cheese quality in Tasmania and in particular the Launceston area. Done miss George Town and visit the Cafe in the Marratime area. They... More

Tamar Valley is an interesting drive but not special. The landscape is flat, rather dry and not very interesting. There are numerous wineries that are happy to have you sample their wines, very friendly people. It was difficult to find restaurants open at night. Also difficult to find Tasmanian produce available eg cheese.

Residents living beside this beautiful river are just so lucky to have this wonderful river on their doorstep. So if you are a visitor to Launceston, like we were, make the most of it. Drive down the west side down to Beauty Point, take some time to enjoy the river mouth area, then cross the river over the Batman Bridge,... More

Such a lovely area to drive through, even if you don't stop anywhere. We picked berries & had lunch at a vineyard & the views only made it better.

Some of Tasmania's best wines comes from the Tamar Valley and surrounds and it is a great way to spend a day driving up one side of the Tamar and down the other side

As a lover of pinot noir, I was very excited to travel the Tamar Valley Wine Route and explore what the local vineyards had to offer. All of th places we visited were lovely and we collected 10 bottles along the way. The vineyards have a great initiative whereby the last winery you stop at can bundle up your wines... More

We loved the beautiful vineyards especially The Three Wishes as the owner at the cellar door was absolutely lovely . We were thrilled to be able to pick apples and blackberries alongside the road. Come prepared with a picnic blanket.

Notley is readily accessible to anyone modestly fit. It represents some of the last of the Wet Rainforest that once was throughout the Tamar Valley. Massive Manferns, Blackwoods, Sassafras, Myrtle with an under-storey of Native pear, Prickly Moses and several minor ferns. Add to this the incumbent pademelon (wallaby), multitude of bird life (I've seen a Pink Robin there) and... More
