Tunbridge
Historic coaching town on the Midland Highway
Originally known as Tunbridge Wells (after the famous English spa town), Tunbridge is a small town located 92 km from Launceston and 107 km from Hobart. It has been by-passed by the main Midland Highway and consequently has a quiet charm well removed from the urgency of the highway.

Tomahawk

Tomahawk
Quiet beach resort on the north coast
It is one of the peculiarities of Tasmania's north coast that the beach resort towns to the east of the Tamar River are sleepy and unassuming. The resort towns between Devonport and Smithton are more highly developed and more popular. This has more to do with access to the beaches rather than the quality of the destinations. A town like Tomahawk, which is so quiet it has little more than a caravan park and a general store, is in the heart of a coastal country characterised by superb beaches, dramatic sand dunes and attractive, isolated countryside. It is an ideal destination for people wishing to escape from the hurly burly and have a peaceful holiday walking on the beach, swimming or fishing.
