Tamar Valley Wine Trail

NORTHERN TASMANIA 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 the 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 and the Pipers River, two of Tasmania’s prettiest wine growing areas. Both banks of the river and the wider valley are packed with  things to see and do. Here you will find vineyards, lavender plantations, strawberry farms and orchards snuggled side-by-side.

The Tamar Valley is Tasmania’s oldest wine growing area and a place where premium cool climate wines, outstanding fresh produce and awardwinning restaurants go hand in hand. In fact, it’s a holiday destination in its own right. Cellar door tastings are a specialty of the area – there are some magnificent vineyards around the valley offering superb views and gourmet experiences: many of the makers will greet you and happily spend time talking about their craft. 

From the Tamar Valley to Pipers River in the north, through to Launceston and Relbia in the south, there are numerous vineyards all within easy driving distance of each other. With rich farmlands, dedicated makers, good roads and light traffic, the Tamar Valley offers some of Tasmania's most enjoyable attractions.
