The Tamar Valley Region is blessed with a number of world renowned wineries, coupled with great scenery and historic locations. It's very easy to drive yourself to the number of locations within the region. I would recommend 3 to 4 days to fully appreciate the area.

Great area for a scenic drive, to look at Brady's lookout. Maybe visit a winery or two ( there are plenty on offer). There are sections of this area that will take your breath away. Only a stones throw away from Launceston city, Beaconsfield mine, seahorse world and platypus house. There are some nice accommodation places also in the area.

To experience Tasmania in its essence, travel the Tamar Valley with the amazing vineyards. Starting with lunch at Vello, travel to Grindelwald to experience the Swiss way of life with lovely cafes and activities for children. Travel down the river to Exter and visit the Gold mine experience, all the way there are vineyards to visit with great wines and... More

We went driving through the Tamar Valley and it's a great scenic drive. There a few wineries you can visit along the way. Tasmania has a lot to offer and it's incredibly relaxing. We even had someone at a servic station ask us if we wanted them to fill our car for us! This is something you don't get to... More

Spent the Sunday and Monday being tourists and doing the wineries. Visited the Beechworth mine museum. Well worth a visit. The rest of the time we were touring around visiting wineries. We started on the west side of the river on Sunday. And then did the East side on Monday before flying back to Melbourne. In a way it was... More

Enjoyed a stay at Tamar Ridge Apartments which offer a sensational view over the Tamar valley & river. Tamar Ridge Cellar door has great wine tastings! Aspect Tamar Valley Resort is a quaint little Swiss village & well worth a visit! The drive up through Beaconsfield & Beauty Point is also worthwhile. Riviera hotel at Beauty Point is a must...

I live here and it is the best spot in the world to me, just magic on a foggy morning on the river and the view of the mountains with snow is magnificent

The drive from Launceston to Beauty Point on the West Tamar has some great scenery and a variety of superb wineries for those interested in wine, also Beaconsfield Heritage Museum, Seahorse World and Wildlife Centre worth the trip. Also can loop back to Launceston via the Batman bridge to enjoy the scenery from the other side of the river back... More
