Tasmania’s Tamar Valley – An Authentic Journey…
Tasmania’s north is a feast of historic streetscapes and heritage estates, rich farmland, premier cool climate wines, fresh produce and a haven for designers and craft makers eager to talk about their work.
Launceston – the largest city in the region – is a vibrant hub for food, wine and culture. There’s also a touch of wilderness with Cataract Gorge not far from the city centre.
The city is located on the banks of the Tamar River and is the gateway to the Tamar Valley, Tasmania’s oldest wine-growing area and a place where premium cool-climate wines, outstanding fresh produce and award winning restaurants go hand in hand. The cellar doors, vineyard restaurants and farmers’ markets of Launceston and the north offer some of the best gourmet experiences in Australia.
From the Valley, to Pipers River in the north, through to Launceston and Relbia in the south, there are more than 32 vineyards within driving distance of each other. Cellar door tastings are a specialty of the Tamar Valley – expect to be pampered, surprised and delighted by your visit to the Valley.
Fall in love with the Tamar Valley’s easy charm – it is a voyage of modern indulgence and discovery of glorious history. Tasmania is a land that should be savoured slowly…with a glass of fine wine in hand and friendly locals to guide you on your way.
