Nice drive from Launceston to Tamar Valley on perfect summer day. Enjoyed wine tasting at Holm Oak Vineyard and Goaty Hill winery. Food at Iron Pot Bay restaurant was divine! Visited Beaconsfield mine site on the way back.

There are so many great wineries around that it’s hard to choose. There are 3 different bus companies that will drive you around and if you do more than one tour with them, they will organise to take you to different ones.

There is plenty of fresh fruit to sample all through the valley, as well as to tasting many varieties of wine. Many attractions line the Tamar River , and the drive beside the river is relaxing and rewarding.
