FACILITIES: There is a shop cum cafe at Greens Beach. The nearest commercial facilities are at BEACONSFIELD. There is some accommodation in the WEST TAMAR.

SIGHT: Greens Beach is a beautiful, white sand beach located just 60 kilometres north of LAUNCESTON. It is a beach holiday settlement with a golf course and one shop cum mini cafe. Greens Beach is on the eastern edge of the NARAWNTAPU National Park. You can walk into the Park into the BADGERS BEACH end.

Greens Beach is on the western side of the Tamar Estuary, so it has good views of GEORGE TOWN, which is on the eastern side of the Tamar. The Beach is noteworthy for its broad, soft, white sands and the extreme distance that the tide recedes to before gently returning.

ROUTE: From LAUNCESTON drive north on the A7 West Tamar Highway past the TAMAR ISLAND, then through EXETER to BEACONSFIELD. At Beaconsfield note the sign pointing to the Greens Beach turn off.

From George Town drive south on the A8 East Tamar Highway, until you see the sign to the west leading to Deviot and Beaconsfield. This takes you across the Tamar River on the Batman Bridge. Here you join the A7 West Tamar Highway, which you follow north to Greens Beach.

Greens Beach, Tasmania

1/ Greens Beach is a holiday settlement in central northern Tasmania. It is North of Launceston. This is the only shop at Greens Beach. It also serves simple meals on the outside tables. Having only one general purpose shop is typical of holiday settlements.
