Wine and viticulture

A leading Tamar Valley industry

Tasmanian wine is experiencing a boom. Our state is gaining fame on the global stage thanks to similar climates to world-famous European winemaking regions, and the East Tamar area is now home to some of the finest cool-climate wineries around.

In fact, over half of all vineyards in Tasmania are located around the Tamar River, making for exciting opportunities within the sector. Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir are among the most revered in the country.

Attracting visitors from near and far

George Town is fortunate to have incredible coastal landscapes, unique history and excellent food and drink offerings, which has made us an ideal tourist destination for local, national and international visitors.

In recent years, development of the George Town Mountain Bike Trail has served as a major attraction for new visitors, adding to popular tourist attractions such as the Tamar Valley wine trail, historical walking tours, penguin tours and walking tracks.

With record numbers of visitors in Tasmania prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and significant government investment into the Tasmanian tourism industry, now is the perfect time for tourism and hospitality businesses to come to George Town and be part of our post-pandemic growth.
