    Default Tassie

    We are going on a holiday to Tassie for Christmas and New Year and we will take Ziggy (I am still ignoring the fact that OHs dad and step-mum will come along too…).
    The first half we will spend in the north in Greens beach and the last days we will be in the south in Premaydena. I haven’t got around to read up on what to do and where to go but I guess starting to ask around here is a good start. Anyone any tips ?! I am particularly interested in walks where we can take Zig and of course dog friendly beaches. And it doesn’t need to be close to our two locations – we take our car and are pretty flexible.

    Tamar Valley... Hope that helps... Actually here is a part of the description of the house we have booked:

    "Greens beach is located on the western side of mouth of the Tamar River. It is just 70km from Launceston, the regional centre for Tasmania and the Tamar Valley wine district."

    Ok, yep. NICE! Tamar Valley is the gateway and surrounds of Launceston. Nice area, and the Vinery Trails are just wonderful. I don't drink, but they are still stunning just for their scenery IMO, with or without the plonk thrown in. Lol.

    If you come near Devonport, Moorlands Beach is a nice place to go for dogs, horses etc.

    There is so much to do, as there is anywhere in the world, but it always depends on what YOU want to do, what things you like, what you're into, that sort of thing.

    Yes I know and I bet it probably want be our last visit to Tassie 10 days are simply not enough.

    I just thought starting here as I know you are living in Tassie and I guess that other members on the forum were in Tasmania for a visit as well. Sometimes you just get great tips like this. And I know about one dog friendly beach now already . Thanks for that!!!
    But I need to look into it more myself of course. I really have to look up some walks that don't go through the National Parks so that we can take Ziggy.

    OHs dad and step-mum..., well they are really nice... and pretty easy going.... and well, you can't say "sorry, but we are in Tassie" when they are coming for a visit from Europe....

    Hey Hippo,

    I agree, Devils Advocate is the one to talk to.

    I went at the begining of the year and fell in love with the place.
    I thought that 'Cataract Gorge' was impressive. A few mins from Launceston, it's an amazing sight of bush,cliffs, water, offering walking trails with amazing views.

    Here's a link to tell you all about it and there's info on othere places of interest too.
    Launceston Cataract Gorge & First Basin - Launceston's own piece of wilderness just 15 minutes walk from the city centre.

    I think that 'Narawntapu National Park' is close to Green Beach. Great for camping, hiking/walking etc. Not sure about doggy rules though.
    Hope this helps
