Tamar Island Wetlands Centre - Review

This lovely preserve covers both the Tamar Island Wetlands Centre (close to the A7 highway) and the island itself, which can be accessed from the center by a boardwalk. Indeed, this is something of a nature trail, with the boardwalk and the trails on the island making up about 4 kilometers worth of walking tracks. The boardwalk to the island itself is about 1.5 kilometers long. Not only is the island a terrific place for birdwatching - pelicans, swans, cormorants - it also has picnic and BBQ facilities. Other amenities include toilets and drinking water. It’s only a ten minute drive from Launceston.

Tamar Island Wetlands Centre, Launceston Reviews

  • Nice walk above the swamps and river. Be careful about the snakes. Think about binoculars if you have it at home - there are a lot of different bird species - it's worth to make a short stop and look at them

  • Stunning place. Definitely recommend to everyone. The boardwalk will leaded you to the birds paradise. There is a paperbark forest & is one of the best intact in Tessie.

  • Lovely place. We saw a copper head snake beside the walkway on our way out. Lots of birds . highly recommend you visit.

  • Beautiful walk around the Tamar wetlands. A fantastic place to observe the local bird life. A $3 voluntary donation to help keep the walk maintained is extremely reasonable for such a great attraction.

  • Very well maintained boardwalk. Great for birdwatching and spotting wildlife
