The Tamar Valley, Launceston

4.7
#3 of 14 in Parks in Launceston
Delve into the growing Australian wine industry and more in The Tamar Valley. Tour some of the 20-odd vineyards of the region--most of which grow Pinot Noir or Chardonnay grapes. Also enjoy gourmet food and soak in the region's spectacular scenery. Start your journey in Launceston, founded in 1806 and Australia's third oldest city. A riverside location and charming Georgian colonial architecture provide a welcoming atmosphere. Use the small city of 100,000 as a base for exploring the nearby Cataract Gorge Reserve, where hiking trails and the world's longest single-span chairlift await just a 15-minute walk from town. A visit to The Tamar Valley represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Launceston holiday planning website to plot your vacation.
