We visited more than 10 wineries over two days; a Monday and Tuesday. A couple of wineries were advertised as open, but were not. A couple not advertised as open, willingly showed off their wines too. The first day we visited Velo (closed!), Tamar Ridge, Holm Oak, Iron Pot Bay, Goaty Hill and Moores Hill. 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.

We went there in August 2013 and luckily the shops were open. We had some crisps for snack and we saw the local school with kids playing soccer. A very interesting and cozy place to visit.

I know that August is winter and quiet, but we drove to so many places very excited, by looking at their websites and other reviews only to find they were CLOSED! or don't have what we wanted. We researched and decided to drive to 2 wineries wanting to have a platter of beautiful gourmet Tassie produce. One winery we wanted... More
