7. Tamar Valley, TAS
Ah, Tasmania. With its views of rolling green hills and glittering seas, the state and great wine just go hand in hand – especially in the Tamar Valley. With a unique sense of family and tradition, the region is home to a range of family owned and operated wineries, as well as restaurants and cafes serving delicious fare. Yum!
Known for pinot noir and reisling, the picture-perfect Tamar Valley is full of historical charm. As you drive from winery to winery you'll pass old settlers' cottages and orchards full of blueberries and raspberries – time your visit right and spend an afternoon picking berries together before taking them back to your accommodation for a scrumptious snack. Be sure to stop at the many historical towns along the way, such as Piper’s River, George Town, Beauty Point and Beaconsfield and meet the colourful characters that call this beautiful part of the world home.
