Tamar Valley was very pretty. It was on the way to Beaconsfield, so the drive was more pleasurable. Possibly wouldn't have gone there for any other reason.

A scenic drive north of Launceston. A pleasant drive through the countryside to George Town and Beaconsfield with many tourist stops on the way. One of the main attractions is to cross over the Batman Bridge that connects the East and West Tamar valley.
