The Tamar valley needs a bit of time spent to really get to see all the hidden treasures. There are many lovely little towns and villages on both sides which are set into the hills with great views. The history of the area is worth looking into especially George Town and Low Head.

We drove the Beaconsfield side first and was a little disappointed in Beaconsfield-pretty dull spot!-and Grindelwald-so unlike a swiss village!!BUT-then we drove the other side to Scottsdale-very quaint and lovely!-up to Bridport to see the lovely beaches and then came back down from Georgetown-so much better!!!

Drove there from Launceston. Took about 6 hours and had many wineries to stop and taste test. Beautifully scenery and many cafes on the way. Very friendly people. A stop to Beaconsfield was included. Enjoyed the history at the mine.

Must visit both East and West side. Must see Jansz, Arras, Goaty Hill, Ninth Island and the list goes on. Find a non drinking mate, hire a mini van for under $100 and have a great day. Plan your trip around heading up either the east or west side and do a round trip - immaculate
