Provincial Tamar encompasses George Town, Low Head, Hillwood and seaside coastal villages.
George Town and Low Head offer a fascinating showcase in the history of Tasmania. Go behind the scenery through captivating convict stories told at The Watch House or by reliving the journey of the "Norfolk" at the Bass and Flinders Centre whilst visiting the shopping hub of George Town. Offering shops and supermarkets, cafes and takeaways, hotels and B&B's, George Town has grown to become a popular regional centre. At it's door, is Windmill Point and York Cove marina, all connected by a coastal path illuminated at night. Cycle or walk the kanamaluka Trail from York Cove to Low Head, enjoying the fresh air and peace whilst taking in the panoramic views of the Tamar River.
As part of the North East 'Arts on Track', enjoy the cultural arts of the region by visiting the galleries appointed throughout the town and region.
Low Head is an enchanting place, bounded by the Tamar River and Bass Strait as it stretches out into the ocean. Ever changing tides and currents gently transform the views through the day. The Low Head Pilot Station with its 1835 beautiful white buildings and well preserved grounds, takes you a step back in time.
Explore the coastal settlements, the creative providore community of Hillwood, the expansive award winning vineyards in the Pipers River area, the warm hospitality of the region and the story of Provincial Tamar comes to life!
