George Town is a short 40-minute drive north of Launceston and is a sleepy seaside hamlet on the eastern banks of the Tamar River. Surrounded by an array of vineyards, orchards, berry farms and lavender fields, it’s a region steeped in history and endowed with a rich maritime past, being Australia’s third oldest settlement behind Sydney and Hobart. Learn about the region’s historic past at the Old Watch House museum, follow the self-guided George Town Heritage Trail, or hire a bike and navigate the stunning 4km coastal path. Mount George Lookout is the best place to stop for a breathtaking panorama over the valley, and for something extra special head to Low Head Coastal Reserve in the evening to spot to the world's smallest penguins as they make their way to the shore to rest for the night.
