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
Had a pleasant time with a colleague walking along the boardwalks this afternoon. The wonderful ladies at the information centre were friendly and welcoming, and offered us sunscreen to protect us from the deceivingly strong Winter sunlight - thankyou! A well preserved piece of the state and introduction to Tasmanian native habitual life. Only a short walk to the Island, its a beautiful hours spent in nature. Would highly recommend if you are a tourist visiting Tasmania.
Reminds me of that old mario kart track banshee boardwalk or whatever. Except the only creepy thing was a guy showing my partner and I pictures of a snake on his phone TO WHICH we never encountered. spooky
A great walk among the wetlands. We needed a few hours to pass the time in Launceston but we didn't feel like driving too far so we ended up in the Tamar Valley Wetlands. You wouldn't know you were in Tasmania's 2nd largest city by walking through the wetlands, you feel like you're the only people on earth. It was pretty quiet for a Sunday morning. They've done a really good job maintaining the wetlands. People sleep on Launceston, yet there are some gems here, including the Wetlands.
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
Great for an easy stroll for all ages, good for wheelchair access, lots birdlife and snakes saw a copperhead today , volunteers are very helpful.
