Beauty Point Plans & ? stay o/n @Beauty Point vs Launceston

Hi,

I am planning to stay 2 nights in Launceston and then head up to Beauty Point to see Platypus and Sea Horse and if time allows, Hillwood Berry Farm. I also saw Bridestowe Lavender Farm which interests me (at least for buying some goodies because my mother loves Lavender).

But this sounds like too much for one day? I will have to head off to Cradle Mountain the next day.

And is it worth staying overnight at Beauty Point or would it be just as easy to stay another night in Launceston and head off the Cradle Mountain from there?

Beauty Point is on the western shore of the Tamar and Bridestowe and Hillwood on the east. The only way between them downriver is the Batman Bridge.

So a good plan would be to do a circle: head north up the West Tamar Highway from Launceston to Beauty Point, then backtrack to the Batman Bridge and head for Bridestowe, then go to Hillwood on the way back to Launceston.

Hi, Yes I can see that now with the help of the zoom function on Google Maps.

And will book that 3rd night in Launceston.

Thanks for input, Kim

Hi Kim, you might want to check out Lavender House at Rowella, it's under the Batman Bridge.

Thanks Nellie - I did see there was another "Lavendar venue". I'll take a look. Kim
