The Tamar Valley is a beautiful area of Tasmania, just north of Launceston.
As one of Tasmania's principle wine producing areas, the Tamar Valley is very
picturesque with orchards, forests and pastures.
An easy trip from Launceston, the Tamar Valley has many attractions:
- Beautiful walks along pretty waterfalls and gorges
- An abundance of wineries
- River cruises
- Lavender fields
- Penguin lookouts
- Strawberry farms
- Art galleries by local Tamar Valley artisians
- Historic settlements
- Great local fishing in the Tamar River
Exploring the Tamar Valley is easy by car, and one of Tasmania's loveliest
drives with many townships to stop and explore.
The Tamar Valley is only a short drive from
Launceston, so it is also a good option to select one of the
Launceston accommodation options available as your
base to stay when visiting the area.
If you are going along the north west coast of Tasmania, you might like
to stop off at
Wynyard where there are plenty of things to do, see and eat.
