Only 30 minutes from Launceston, the scenic route to York Cove explores the majestic Tamar River as it meanders through the heart of vineyard country. On the way you'll pass orchards, scenic pastures and forests – and have the opportunity to eat until your heart's content while you're at it. Other detours include east towards Narawntapu National Park for panoramic views of Badger Head and Bass Strait, or Launceston's local beach destination, Greens Beach.
York Cove is at the centre of the best this region has to offer. Start exploring by hitting off with a round of golf at the Barnbougle Dunes, enjoy a glass of wine at award-winning Tasmanian vineyards and cellar doors or dip into the history of the Low Head Pilot Station and Lighthouse.

York Cove is at the epicenture of the longstanding history and heritage of George Town. First settled in 1804, the township has been known for its fishing, industry, and now a popular holiday destination. George Town's close sibling, Low Head, also shares in this deep history. Delve below the surface and learn about the region's maritime history at Australia's oldest Pilot and Signal Station, or hear the sound of the foghorn belowing from the Low Head Lighthouse.
Experience Barnbougle – an unforgettable golfing adventure only moments away. Be surrounded by the stark coastline and undulating farmland hills as you play your favourite game on a worldclass course.
