An easy 50 minute drive from Launceston, on the North East Coast of Tasmania, Weymouth is a seaside destination surrounded by beautiful undulating rural properties...sheep, cattle, vines.... with views of Mts Arthur and Barrow on approach.
Wildlife abounds...you're sure to see birds of prey, echidnas, wombats and wallabies, perhaps dolphins and pelicans and if you're lucky, the elusive Tassie Devil.
Surrounded by some of Tasmania's premium vineyards and cellar doors, there's ample opportunity to find a good drop to share at the shack.
PLACES TO VISIT
Wineries abound in the area, many with cellar doors, wine tasting and platters of tasty treats. Some of our favourites include:
