If you want to enjoy the tamar river leave launceston the Silt behind. Right down the west tamar there are Vineyards and stop offs to enjoy the river and get some great photos. Beauty Point is a Spectacular place to go to enjoy it to its fullest.

Went on the 4 hour lunch cruise on the Tamar River. Captain extremely informative and the staff all very good and helpful. The day was calm and sunny so this made everything look lovely on the river with some wonderful reflections in the water.
