Camping and Caravanning in the Launceston, Tamar and the North areas of Tasmania
Expect the unexpected in this region and enjoy the colourful rhododendrons and peacocks as well as rock climbing, hang gliding and even white water rafting. Savour the sights, smells and tastes of the fine food served in Launceston’s bistros and restaurants before strolling the boardwalks of Tamar Island. Observe birds at play in their natural habitat and explore Notley Gorge’s lush rainforest and cascading waterfalls. Low Head is also a popular tourist attraction to witness the fairy penguins returning each evening to their burrows in the coastal scrub.
Tasmania’s North East is a land of stunning scenery and colourful wildflowers. Summertime brings the poppy fields to life and the rows of lavender blaze with an electric purple hue. Glittering beaches dot the coast and the turquoise sea surges against the contrasting backdrop of rugged cliffs, rich history and unique wildlife. (source: www.tasmania.visitorsbureau.com.au)
