Tamar Valley – Tasmania
Stretching 60km from the Bass Strait to Launceston, the valley is intersected by the Tamar River, a wide tidal waterway. The Batman Bridge unites the two shores near Deviot.
To make the most of the valley, drive south along the west side of the river, into Launceston and return along the east. On the way, you will find small pretty villages and plenty of viewing spots.
The undulating hills of the valley and its rich agricultural land attract growers and producers including ciders, truffles, walnuts, cherries, olive oil and more, all committed to their produce.
For wine lovers, there are some magnificent wineries with superb views and wine tasting, with a number of them offering tasting platters or restaurants. At many of the wineries, the makers will greet you and happily spend time talking about their craft. Visit Tamar Valley Wine Route for more information.
With rich farmlands, dedicated makers and good roads, the Tamar Valley offers some of Tasmania’s most enjoyable experiences.
