Great wineries and beautiful scenery

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 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!

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
