Explore the valley's natural beauty.

Kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes at Greens Beach. This favourite with the locals is also the doorstep of the Narawntapu National Park. We recommend the three-hour return walk from the carpark to the West Head lookout with breathtaking, clifftop views of Badger Head beach and along the North-West coast as far as Table Cape and the Dial Ranges.


Other beaches worth a look are Gravelly Beach (keep your shoes on), Beauty Point, and Low Head (featuring delightful little penguins and the historic pilot station).


Walks abound in the Tamar Valley region, all depending on your time and stamina. The Tamar Island Wetlands is an easy trek on the boardwalk that will reward you with sights of birdlife on the estuary, flora, and fauna. Notley Fern Gorge features a short, 45-minute walk and is a photographer’s paradise; a thriving oasis of ferns, mosses, and soaring gums. 


Check out the Parks Tasmania website to further whet your appetite for adventure in Tasmania’s pristine wilderness. If a more manicured view of nature is your cup of tea, check out the Launceston Parks and Gardens guide. And it cannot be left unsaid that a trip to Launceston is incomplete without a visit to The Cataract Gorge.
