Great wineries all up the West side of the Tamar and gorgeous views too. Take the river road and have a good lunch at Hotel on the way

“beautiful Tamar river and valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

so stunning - peaceful, gentle views - and fog on may days but that adds to the beauty here. Travelling along slowly viewing the vineyards and paddocks, and the quaint narrow roads close to the river - I love it. The only downside is the silt buildup near the city of Launceston - when the tide is out it stinks.

“Gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

A gorgeous valley with numerous boutique wineries scattered throughout. Not far from the city. Do a tour and you can pick up bottled from each winery you visit, the last winery will organise freight for you. Delicious wines, esp pinot noir and pinot gris.

“Beautiful views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Always a nice drive down the Tamar. Plenty to see. Nice to see Grindlewald up and looking good again. It was looking a bit tired. Stopped in for a touch of Swiss.

“Really enjoyable walk - Tamar Island Wetland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This walk was easy and for us easily the best attraction near Launceston. There is a good interpretation centre and a series of boardwalks and bridges that take you out to an island in the river. Good interpretive brochure and signage for the wildlife and history. Lots of birds frogs and even a snake (looked like a black snake but was a copperhead we were told).
