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.

Discover Hobart and beyond…

Using Hobart as your base, no matter which direction you choose to venture, there’s an array of world-class experiences and activities on offer for visitors to this stunning region.

Arts and culture, food and drink, wilderness, heritage, wildlife and waterways – all are ever present.

But there’s a good reason well-known foodies and wine lovers have settled in in southern Tasmania. The soil is rich, the water and air is pure, and innovative locals serve up paddock to plate goodness. Makers, brewers and farmers deliver everything from soft goat’s cheese, smoked salmon and roadside apples to world-class wines. Pick your own fresh produce direct from the source, book in for a cooking master class or pull up at a seat at one of Hobart’s stylish eateries. Food and drink in Tasmania has personality and authenticity – do it your way.

Vineyards are closer to Hobart than any other capital city, including in the Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley and the Huon / Channel wine growing areas.

South of Hobart are the clear waters and stunning coastline of Bruny Island, the fertile soils of the Huon Valley where vineyards and orchards nestle side-by-side, and the picturesque beauty of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.

East of Hobart are the wineries and vineyards of the Coal River Valley and the Tasman National Park with its spectacular coastline and historic convict sites.

To the north west is the Derwent Valley, where the road follows the beautiful Derwent River through rows of poplars and on to Tasmania’s central highlands and the grandeur of Lake St Clair and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

It is the experiences from one moment to the next that will ensure you never forget Tasmania’s south.
