If you want to get out of the city then the Tamar valley is worth a visit. On a sunny day the scenery can't be beaten and it is very relaxing.

Lovely drive up the east side to George Town, across Batman Bridge to Beaconsfield and return to Launceston on west side of Tamar. Great views.

Good way to spend an afternoon driving down one side and back across Batman Bridge. Look at Grindelwald - Swiss village - and Beauty Point for platypus sanctuary.

Spend a relaxed 6 hours driving through the valley, stopping at some quality wineries, providing great tasting and food. A numbers of craft and nature stops also provide worthwhile stops. Proximity to Launceston makes it a must do trip.

This beautiful area just North of Launceston in the direction of Beauty Point, provides spectacular views over the river below. There are several viewing points including Brady's Lookout! Well worth climbing up to take in the best view.

A nice drive along the freeway and you come to George Town. I kept going to Low Head and it was beautiful scenery, rocky foreshore with a number of almost deserted beaches despite a warm 27 deg. Several lighthouses to take in overlooking beautiful views...More

They are quite close to each other. Cataract G is slightly closer to Hobart and would make a good stop before going to the Tamar valley.
