Information

Beaconsfield is a gold-mining town in the Tamar Valley with a history of wealth and survival. Located just west of the Tamar River, Beaconsfield was once Tasmania's richest gold town with a mining heritage that continues today.

The Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre if the visitor focal point, particularly since 2006r when a mine colapse and a 14 day rescue effort captured the imagination of the World. The exhibit includes a breath-shortening multi-sensory simulation of the 2006 disaster.

Beaconsfield also has some architectural gems, including the beautiful timber Holy Trinity Church.

Nearby Holwell Gorge reserve, is just 10 km south of Beaconsfield, with tall trees, waterfalls and a scenic walking track.

The town is also close to some of Tasmania's best cool-climate wineries, Narawntapu National Park and Greens Beach at the mouth of the Tarmar River. Beaconsfield is only a 40-min drive (41 km) north from Launceston.
