Good drive

Tamar Valley is an interesting drive. The main attraction we found was Beaconfield mine museum. What an interesting place not to be missed. We spent over 2 1/2 hours there.

Start on the west Tamar and spend an hour taking in wetlands just out of Launceston - A fantastic walk way. Take in Brady's look out where the famous bush ranger Mathew Brady would watch over the...

The outdoor settings where you can eat the well prepared tasting plates -salmon plate, the pate plate or the cheese plate are very well positioned. WE had the salmon... More

It is the valley of Tamar River, mainly located between Launceston and George Town at the river mouth. A beautiful river valley with vineyards scattered along the river valley, truly beautiful landscape. You can visit this area through two roads, the east side road and the west side road. The connection point between these roads is Batman Bridge. Nice road... More
