Tamar Valley Wine Route

The seductive Tamar River meanders for 58 kilometres through the fertile Tamar Valley with vineyards, orchards, pastures and forests, from the boutique-chic regional city of Launceston, and then north to the turquoise sea of Bass Strait.

Fall in love with the Tamar Valley’s easy charm and quaint accommodation; from sweeping views of rolling hills to the crisp white sands of the Bass Strait, the Tamar Valley is a voyage of modern indulgence and discovery of glorious history captured in the award winning circa 1800’s Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre and iconic Batman Bridge.

At its heart is the acclaimed Tamar Valley Wine Route which is the oldest wine region in Tasmania. From the Valley, to Pipers River in the north and Relbia in the south, there’s more than 30 wineries within driving distance of each other, coupled with some spectacular scenery along the way.

It’s a voyage of discovery from the rustic to the sophisticated, each vineyard with its own unique story – often to be told by the winemakers themselves, whose cool climate wines attract worldwide attention.

Cellar door tastings are a specialty of the Tamar Valley – so expect to be pampered, surprised and delighted by your visit to the Valley.

Note: Please check vineyard listings for opening hours as some are only open by appointment.
