Its a wonderful way to enjoy launceston. Just a short drive out to enjoy the wonderful scenery and sip on one or two wine along the way.

Wine, cheese, the beautiful Launceston countryside and happy people - what more could you want? We had such a great day driving the wine route, trying the wines, learning about the wineries and region and getting to know the people. There wasn't a lot of pressure to buy, which was refreshing. All in all a great day out.

The Tamar valley encompasses a vast area but is beautiful at every turn. Great towns, history, wine and food. The small town of George Town is voted by me as the high light of the area. History, friendly people, beautiful scenery and some fantastic wood carvings that have to be seen to be believed......Beautiful!

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
