Tassie start to holiday

We spent the first 3 nights of our Tassie holiday at Elphin Motel in Racecourse Crescent as a base to check out Cataract Gorge, city Park, Auto Museum & the Town then a day trip up the west side of Tamar River to Exeter, Beaconsfield Mine, Crossed Batman Bridge to east side of river & up to Georgetown and Low Head. Drive back to Launceston with winery opportunities. Brian & Maureen we’re very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean & well presented, good parking and a Coles supermarket in walking distance. We will be back!

This stay was wonderful because the owners were fantastic. Great for bigger families or groups who want to cook/entertain because Coles is also just a minute away
