We drove from Beauty Point across the Batman Bridge - stop and walk over it. Great photographs. We drove down the east side, through Launceston and back up the west side. Stop where you can - it's all beautiful.

Took a day trip, drove from Launceston to West Tamar and came back from East Tamar so that we don't miss out any scenery for both sides of the Valley. Stopped by Beauty Point for our lunch, then to Sea Horse and Platypus attractions. Dropped by the beautiful beach in Greens Beach. Then cross over to Batman Bridge to take... More

Probably the best known feature of the Tamar Valley is the Beaconsfield Gold Mine, which is now a museum and well worth a visit, but the area has so much going for it from a number of vineyards with cellar-door sales, through a pleasant riverside drive past Rosevears (the pub is worth a lunch stop), to the attractions at Beauty...

I drove through the Tamar Valley from Launceston to Beauty Point (56kms) on a half day trip- numerous cellar doors to visit along the way. Lunched at Tamar Cove Resort- gourmet lunches for $9.90, great coffee and fantastic friendly service. Camera is a must bring.

Drive up the East (A8) and West Tamar (A7) Highways to get the best views of this river valley and see how wide the river is. The drives take you through little towns and vineyards. There's a good viewing vantage point of the river from Brady's lookout on the West Tamar highway. Take the West Tamar Highway all the way... More

Excellent day out from Launceston. We did both the east and west in a jam packed day! Wine, food, history, countryside views. Lovely day out.
