When was the last time you visited the North East of Tasmania for a holiday? Never maybe! You are missing out on a great region to enjoy local seafood and wine, some great bush walking, swimming in summer, golf at Barnbougle Dunes (and don’t forget the local nine hole course either); visiting vineyards and Bridestowe Lavender Estate, the largest commercial lavender farm in the southern hemisphere!

The Blue Tier region is fantastic for taking the family for a walk. Some tracks are easy so take your picnic lunch! When you are on top of the hills in north east Tasmania, you can even see the sea!

You shouldn’t miss the easy stroll to Ralphs Falls either, it’s near Ringarooma. There’s a barbecue hut and the road keeps going on down to St Columba Falls and Pyengana where there’s a great cafe and cheese factory.
