Northern Tasmania – Part 1

That’s all from Launceston, but it’s the beginning of our drive around Tassie.

Launceston

The next morning we made our way north along the Tamar Valley and stopped at the little town of Beaconsfield. It was up until 2012 a gold mining town. A mine collapse in 2006 contributed to its end.

The town was founded in the mid 1800s and was quite a prosperious place. Now it houses the Mine & Heritage Centre.
