Caravanning in the Tamar Valley

Are you planning a trip to Tasmania with your caravan? Great choice! This is one of the best ways to truly immerse yourself in the Tasmanian lifestyle, countryside and people.

Once you've arrived in Devonport on the Spirit of Tasmania, your first question is probably 'which direction to head first'. Explore Northern Tasmania and turn left to start your adventure in the beautiful Tamar Valley.

As you navigate Frankford Road you'll be treated to stunning views, from lush green farms to forests and even glimpses of Bass Strait. After a picturesque drive, you'll reach the town of Exeter, be sure to stop at Cabin Coffee for a pick me up and stock up on some delicious treats from the Exeter Bakery. The town of Exeter has two IGA Supermarkets stocking a good range of essentials, and for high quality fresh meat, check out Nigels Gourmet on Tamar. Parking your caravan or turning around is easy, as there is plenty of space in front of the high school.

Before continuing on your journey, head to the Tamar Visitor Centre in Exeter for information on the region. For your convenience, in nearby Beaconsfield there is a dump point.

There are several caravan parks in the region, here is a few:

The Tamar Valley is the perfect choice for an unforgettable Tasmanian adventure. With your caravan as your trusty companion, you're sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.

While you are here, and with your caravan safely parked, take the time to explore the region. Here are some top tips:

Once the west side of the river has been enjoyed, hitch up your van and cross the Batman Bridge to the east, heading north to Low Head. Use the Low Head Tourist Park or East Beach Tourist Park as your base for this special part of the valley, with views to Bass Strait.

The George Town Visitor Information Centre can provide lots of local tips and offers a dump point.

From here, continue east into a very caravan friendly part of Tasmanian and continue to enjoy the hidden gems of the region.
