Day Trip

Tasmania - Tamar Valley

Tamar River

Relax and reflect in Tamar Valley

For some reason wine country seems to run at a different pace. In the Tamar Valley region, you can’t help but slow down and appreciate every bend of the Tamar River. Or the area’s low-lying hills dotted with vineyards that roll towards the river. The region is like an oasis that wraps around the lovely streets of Launceston. Explore its many cafes, restaurants and shops reopening their doors. And for a real treat, walk across the bridge at Cataract Gorge at sunset.

Trip Highlights

When you head north for the Tamar Valley, a stop in Richmond is a must. Only a stone’s throw across the Derwent, the small, old town is best known for its stone bridge – the oldest bridge in Australia. But there’s plenty else to see. Grab a coffee from one of the cafes or browse collectibles in one of the antiques stores, before continuing north. When you get to Launceston, pop in and say hello to the husband and wife duo that run Holm Oak vineyards. Winemaker Rebecca Duffy and her viticulturalist husband, Tim, know everything there is to know about good grapes. And when you’re ready to call it a night, check in at the luxurious rooms at The Granary in Richmond Hill. Made from sandstone brick, the building tells a story and provides the perfect base for a weekend of exploration around the rest of Tamar Valley.
