Things to see in the Tamar Valley

Launceston: Hollybank Treetops Adventure

Allow three hours for a visit to Hollybank Treetops Adventure park about 20kilometres north-east of Launceston. There's over a kilometre of zip-line glides - one single line over 400 metres long - for you to swoop throught the forest like an eagle. Hollybank - established by Forestry Tasmania - is the ideal place to learn about forest ecology.

Tamar Valley Wine Route

The Tamar Valley Touring Route follows the Tamar River from Launceston to Bass Strait, past wildlife sanctuaries and high-yielding vineyards, but it also takes in mining and maritime heritage in Beaconsfield and George Town. Riverside villages and vineyards are beautiful places to sample pinots and rieslings at the cellar door or dine in winery restaurants with big views and menus featuring the best of Tasmania's fresh produce.

Beaconsfield Gold

Beaconsfield Gold is a listed gold producer tapping into one of Australia's richest gold veins. Beaconsfield Gold offers excellent exposure to gold and growth prospects through its highly prospective exploration programmes in Tasmania and Victoria.

Tasmania Zoo

Nestled in the foothills of the Tamar Valley, 18 km from the CBD of Launceston, you'll find Tasmania Zoo, the largest wildlife park in Tasmania. Tasmania Zoo is situated on 900 acres of private old growth native bushland and home to the largest collection of native and exotic animals in Tasmania. We have over 80 species of birds, wombats, echidna's, kangaroos, quolls, reptiles, monkeys and more.
