WEYMOUTH & Lulworth

WEYMOUTH Beach and LULWORTH Beach are adjacent, beautiful beaches in north eastern Tasmania. The area is popular, because it is somewhat protected from the cold winds of Bass Strait. There are holiday settlements at both beaches and each has a shop. The beaches are located between GEORGE TOWN and BRIDPORT. Both are only about 20 minutes from George Town. In terms of accessing other areas, Weymouth and Lulworth are as much a part of the TAMAR VALLEY, as they are part of the NORTH EAST Region.

From WEYMOUTH you are 15 minutes from both BRIDPORT and GEORGE TOWN. You are 3o minutes from SCOTTSDALE and LILYDALE and 50 minutes from LAUNCESTON, WATERHOUSE and DERBY.

Nearby places are described in the NORTH EAST REGION and the TAMAR REGION, GEORGE TOWN, BRIDPORT, SCOTTSDALE, LILYDALE, LAUNCESTON, WATERHOUSE and DERBY pages.

FACILITIES: There is a shop at Weymouth, but there are no commercial facilities at Lulworth. The nearest shopping precincts are at Bridport and George Town. There is some accommodation at GEORGE TOWN and much accommodation at BRIDPORT.

SIGHT: The north coast of Tasmania has many beautiful, deserted beaches. The only problem is that local Tasmanians can swim in temperatures of only 15 degrees, which most Australians find too cold. Weymouth and Lulworth beaches are better than some, as they are protected from the cold winds by being shallow bays protected by head lands. For this reason they are very popular in the Tasmanian summer. There are some first class wineries in this area. The nearest towns are GEORGE TOWN and BRIDPORT.

ROUTE: From LAUNCESTON there are two possible routes of equal merit. Firstly you can drive north on the A8 East Tamar Highway, until you turn east on B82 which goes to BRIDPORT. From B82 turn north on C816, which takes you there.

Secondly, you can drive north on B83 through Turners Marsh to Pipers River. Then turn east onto B82 and after a short distance turn north on C816, which takes you there.
