Drive along the river side from Launceston to Green Beach then cross the Batman Bridge and come back along the other side of the river and return to Launceston. There are quite a wine groves in the valley so why not call in and do a wine tasting and maybe even lunch. Lovely day trip.

So many places to see and visit allow at least 2 days as there is so much to see and appreciate - leave the mobile phone alone and take in the ambience of the drive. Plenty of places to sample food and drink or just lose yourself in the relaxing arena.

It was a rainy day in Launceston and at a bit of a lost of what to do, decided we would go for a drive. Stopped at three wineries to do some wine and food tasting (Swinging gate vineyards was a lovely, friendly experience, highly recommend it).

We enjoyed our day in the east Tamar region, particularly Bay of Fires and Leaning Church wineries. Both offer beautiful locations, good food and excellent staff. We didn't get to west Tamar but met a number of people who recommended Goaty Hill, and that will be a priority for us when next visit Tassie. We visited a couple of other... More

What a lovely serene place the scenery is amazing so make sure you have your camera. I had a lovely stay and look around. I want to go back because I didn't get to everywhere I wanted.

Only a short drive up the east bank of the Tamar past the suburb of Riverside. We visited at 5:00pm on a summer's night. The walk is a series of boardwalks amongst the reeds and silt islands. Fantastic for watching bird life. The walk goes out to Tamar Island which is an elevated hill in the middle of the river... More

The Tamar Valley is a good place for car trips from Launceston. We did two - one to Georgetown and the Low Head Lighthouse. The lighthouse is attractive and you can do a tour but there's nothing much else in Georgetown. On our second trip we went to Seahorse World at Beauty Point which was a 45 minute drive. There...

We had a lovely time on the river with Callum steering the boat and providing the commentary. It was a four hour trip but it flew by. Morning tea was muffins lunch was sandwiches. Don't sneer . They were delicious! Tea and coffee was available all day. The highlight of the day was when we went right up into the... More

Drive down the East Tamar Highway across the Batman Bridge and back up the West Tamar Highway to Launceston. Wineries, strawberry farm, Bradeys lookout, just some of the things to stop at on the way. Scenery is amazing! Great day trip.
