The West Tamar Valley

The West Tamar really is one big playground. 

Starting in Riverside you have the pool centre with waterslide, kids pools and Olympic sized main pool, Tailrace Park with a kid friendly skynet, BBQ, playground and loads of space to run around and don’t miss Kids Paradise at the Tailrace centre. 

Not far away are the Tamar Island Wetlands with a great short walk, you’ll see ducks, swans, hens, raptors and other water birds from the hideout.

You can skate and play at Gravelly Beach, again with a brand new playground, skate ramps and the Tamar River right at your feet! Stop in at Grindelwald for paddle boats, mini-golf, jumping pillow and a chocolate cafe – feel free to stay a night or two. 

Next stop is the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre with tunnels, animal hunts, gold panning and lots of buttons to push, levers to pull and hands on displays. 5 minutes away you can double up at Beauty Point and see the platypus and echidnas at Platypus House and seahorses, hermit crabs, starfish and other cool fish at Seahorse World.

Now relax by the sea with Greens Beach and West Head only 10 minutes away – swim, build sandcastles, catch a fish for dinner and on the way back stop for a picnic at Batman Bridge!
