The city...................

Situated in the Tamar Valley, its only a short 45 minute flight from Melbourne.
A big attraction here, is Cataract Gorge. Its a short walk from the city centre. Theres a large suspension bridge over the gorge, and a single span chairlift. A swimming pool, or for more adventure, abseiling and white water rafting, we just enjoyed the pleasant walk.

The outskirts........................

Trips up the Tamar Valley following the Tamar river are full of beautiful scenery, this is one of our favorite spots in Tasmania.

    There is so much to see and do on this tiny island. You've covered a lot more than me. Love the smoking room.
