Elizabeth Town

Elizabeth Town is a hotspot on the Gourmet Trail, and a favourite stop for commuters traveling between Launceston, Deloraine and Devonport.

Prospect Vale

The suburb of Prospect Vale is situated on the western perimeter of Launceston in Northern Tasmania. It's the perfect place to start your Great Western Tiers adventure if you are traveling from either Hobart or Launceston.

Meander

Meander is a small rural settlement set amongst some of Tasmania's most beautiful scenery. As you enter Meander from Stocker's Plains you are faced with the imposing rim of the Great Western Tiers - spectacular, especially in winter when the tops are covered in snow.

Carrick

Great examples of this include St Andrews Church (1848), Balmoral (1851), The Old Watchhouse (1837), Carrick Inn (1833) and the Old Mill House (1867), where the picturesque Liffey River crosses the western end of the township.

Hagley

Mole Creek

Mole Creek offers some of the richest and most diverse natural wonders of the Great Western Tiers region. Exploration underground reveals the world-class King Solomons and Marakoopa Caves, a major attraction for visitors. Above ground is equally spectacular with natural gems in the mountains, highland plateau and rainforest country of the World Heritage Area. If wildlife is your thing, there's an abundance of native animals on display at Trowunna Wildlife Park; home of the Devil Education and Research Centre.

Deloraine

Tasmania's largest inland town, Deloraine is surrounded by classic 'English-style' countryside of rolling green hills, hedgerows, and working farms, and sits at the foothills of the famous Great Western Tiers, which form the northern edge of the World Heritage Central Plateau region.
