Enjoy driving throughout the valley - take any side roads and you will always find something beautiful. Plenty of lovely places to eat and lots to see. The Tamar Valley is a very pretty part of Tasmania.

We had such a great time cruising The Tamar Valley. Lovely rolling hills and such gorgeous wineries. Little towns with such character and all along being close to the river...The Tamar Valley is absolutely beautiful. Take your time doing this one!

A beautiful spot with plenty to see and do. Eating, drinking, walking, bird watching, history, culture, fishing, golf......., this place has got everything. Some spectacular views can be had at local lookouts. I can’t wait to get back there.

The Tamar Valley really is stunnning. We were very fortunate to spend a beautiful sunny glorious day down here. Then watch the day turn to watch. It really is a jewel in Tasmania’s crown.
