Nice car ride very scenic must do while in Loney, very picturesque. Just drive around the riverside along some vineyards on a sunny day the view was amazing. Took many pictures so beautiful.

We spent three days driving around this pretty region. Rolling hills, wineries, country roads, along side a picturesque river. We had great weather, to take out time, and enjoy this beautiful part of Tasmania. We based ourselves in Launeston, but next trip, will definitely suss out an airbnb and stay local .

The Tamar Valley is a must for any Tasmanian or tourist. With lots of activities on offer, it's the wineries we stop off at with our overseas or interstate guests the most often.

Three views of the Tamar Valley that is overlooked by Mt Arthur and Mt Direction. From Windmill Hill in the heart of Launceston you can look north downstream as the river flows towards Bass Strait. At home point two rivers, the North Esk and the south Esk finally come together after two separate courses from the Ben Lomond Plateau in... More

I lived "down" the Tamar valley for many years. Take the time to explore the river from Launceston. Stick to the side roads that follow the river north and take the time to explore the lookouts (Brady's Lookout) and wineries. If you make it to Greens Beach that is as far north as you can go. Take the time to... More

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
