The Tamar Valley, on Launceston's doorstep,  is renowned as one of Australia's best cool-weather wine regions.

Take a day to explore the eastern and western shores of the Tamar Valley.  Set out north from Launceston on either the East or West Tamar Highways, crossing over to the other side of the Tamar River on the beautiful Batman Bridge.

Enjoy lunch at a vineyard restaurant, and maybe branch off to explore Beaconsfield, Beauty Point or Georgetown.
