The chair lift across Caract George was beautiful and allowed a g ood overall view of the gorge. The walks around the gorge are great and well worth doing. A little disappointed in the 100 year old garden - lovely big trees but that is about all.

Close to Launceston, the valley stretches along the west and east sides of the river. The wine industry is important here and wine tastings form an important part of a tour. In summer, berry and fruit farms sell an abundance of fruit. Car or minibus (on a guided tour) are the only options available for reaching the Tamar Valley from... More

Took a prestige wine tour around the Tamar Valley, very enjoyable day. Our tour guide Laura was fun and knowledgable and had really done her research about the wineries we visited.

This was our second time to the Tamar Valley. It is such a relaxing, scenic part of the world. The river and wineries are lovely. There is plenty to do in the area with kids too. Definitely worth being part of your Tassie experience

We drove from Launceston up to Beauty Point stopping at Beaconsfield on the way. The museum at the Beaconsfield Mine is a must. It was so interesting. We had our two young grandsons with us and they loved playing with the old telephones as well as climbing on all the old engines and other memorabilia. The videos of the mine... More

Had a recommendation to take this drive and it was a good one. Travelled up the western side of the estuary to Batman bridge then back down the other side to Launceston. Plenty of options along the way especially wineries. Nice drive.
