We decided to drive through the Tamar Valley to view the countryside & to taste the wine & food on offer. It is an easy drive from Launceston, well sign-posted & well worth the day out. Would definitely recommend the day.

Spectacular views as you drive up the western side of the Tamar River with plenty of vineyards and places to see. Cross over the Batman Bridge for the trip back to Launceston with strawberries and apples to buy.

It's a beautiful valley, lots of sheep and if you you're going for a lazy Sunday drive than i recommend going. There are a lot of vineyards, but I find Tassie wines over rated and expensive so not my cup of tea.

This is why we moved here. The Tamar Valley offers the best wine, food and scenery all wrapped up in a two hour circuit tour.

I spent so much of my life living in and around the Tamara valley, so after 25 years away it was a nostalgic journey to old homes, haunts and scenes. The charm has not left this idyllic valley even though the place has changed, gone...More
