I hope Think Tasmania readers enjoy these images of Low Head Lighthouse, at the mouth of the Tamar River. There’s also an image of the Tamar Estuary, looking inland (from the same location). I took the photographs just after I had visited the Bass & Flinders Centre in George Town, before I ventured inland again and back to my base in Zeehan.

Readers interested to learn more about the Tamar Valley region will be happy to know Len Langan plans to write more about George Town in the future. He touched on the subject in a previous article written about a journey to north east Tasmania…
George Town introduces you to Tasmania’s second settlement dating back to its foundation in 1804 although technically the town may be said to have been set out in 1815. It is rich in history and worth spending time in knowing that the local people take a great pride in its heritage. The adjoining area known as Low Head is of great interest adding a maritime museum to colour your experience here.
We’ve also added Low Head and George Town to our list of places to return in Tasmania, just to gather more first-hand information. It’s a long list of places… but we’ll get around to everywhere eventually! We have been to the lighthouse before, but not for a very long time. And we don’t have enough vivid memories to share. So rather than rehash something lame, another task shall be added to the must-do basket.
In the meantime, if you’re keen to make your own way to the far-north of the Tamar Valley region, you might light to visit the Low Head Lighthouse and Pilot Station Maritime Museum website for more details including visiting hours and entrance fees.
Thanks to David Lamplough for another fabulous contribution, with even more images in hand to publish as soon as humanly possible. We promise. We just need a few more hours in the day people! Check out David’s other feature collections, including…
