Tamar Island

Tas – Launceston – Tamar Island

Location: Tamar Isalnd Wetlands, West Tamar Highway, Riverside, Tasmania
Grade: Easy,
Time: 1hr
Distance: 4km
Facilities: Toilets, Disabled access, BBQ, Parking, Information centre

Tamar Island is only 15min from Launceston’s CBD and is beside the Tamar river.

An excellent Information Centre is located at the start of the walk. Follow the board walk to view  many different species of water loving birds and wrecked boats (once used for silt mitigation). There’s also a pontoon and an old shack.

There are huge oak trees on Tamar Island – look for the tree with a plough.

Gas BBQ’s make it the perfect place for a picnic.

Best time to visit is on high tide.


Thank you Elaine for adding this walk!!!
