Tamar Valley Wine Route

Tasmania’s oldest wine region, with 30 cellar doors. Tasmanian winegrowers use the cleanest air in the world, the purest mountain water and the four distinct seasons of the mid-southern latitudes to produce premium quality wines for a world market.

Tamar Island Wetlands

Hollybank Treetops Adventure

Glide through the treetops along almost one kilometre of cable in specially designed harnesses, enjoying a birds-eye view of the forest and Pipers River - or take a ‘segway’ for an exhilarating glide on tracks established on the forest floor. Unique and fantastic fun!
