Deloraine is located 54km southeast of Launceston in some delightfully scenic country. Approaching the township from Devonport offers stunning scenery of farmlands and the gorgeous crops of poppies grown here.
This charming little village is nestled amongst rolling green hills and rural farming pastures and offers quaint little coffee shops and award winning bakehouses which bake the delicious scallop pies Tasmania is famous for.
It makes a nice stop to break up your trip, or stay a night at the local B&B and unwind. There are no caravan parks here.
The Meander River in town is a tranquil place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery. The grassy banks have picnic shelters and are decorated with brighly cololured roses. Have a cuppa or lunch by the river before continuing on your journey.
This is usually a small and quiet town with only a couple of thousand residents. However the population multiplies more than tenfold each November when the Tasmanian Craft Fair
is held in the town. The fair runs for 4 days and there are more than 200 stalls spread throughout the town. A diverse variety of arts and crafts and made, displayed and sold during the big event and there are plenty of activities to participate in. Local art and craft is also sold year round in the town galleries.
Liffey Forest Reserve is some 29km south of town and Liffey Falls are a beautiful attraction worth paying a visit. The falls are accessible by Riverdale Rd which is 6km of unsealed road. An easy 1km walk to the falls through the thriving green forest, characterised by huge ferns and moss-clad trunks and boulders, is thoroughly enjoyable. The Liffey River cascades over a pathway of boulders to the magnificent Liffey Falls. The falls have several tiers and look amazing.
Back at the carpark is an impressive Browntop Stringybark Eucalyptus Tree, with a diameter of 3.39 metres and a height of 50 metres. They grow them big in Tassie.
Deloraine and surrounds is a beautiful rural region with country charm and magical scenery.
