If you’re intent on exploring, The Charles Robbins is surrounded by a host of attractions for tourists. We’re right on the doorstep of Tasmania’s world-renowned cool-climate wine region and it’s just a short drive to both wineries and farm-gate producers. There are also a number of award-winning attractions where you can get up close with Tasmania’s unique fauna, including penguins, Tasmanian devils and platypuses.
TAMAR WINE ROUTE
The Tamar Valley is one of Tasmania’s premium wine growing regions. It specialises in cool climate wines such as sparkling wines and Pinot Noir, although Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer are all grown in the valley. The Charles Robbins is centrally located for visitors to these highly renowned Tamar Valley wineries. Some of our famous wineries include Jansz, Pipers Brook, Clover Hill and Bay of Fires. Wine Route Brochures are available from Reception for guests to peruse and help is available for guests wanting to book winery tours.
HISTORIC GEORGE TOWN AND LOW HEAD
The Charles Robbins is closely linked with the history of George Town and the development of Tasmania. Due in no small part to the work undertaken by Charles Robbins, Tasmania’s iconic Heritage Route commences in George Town and Low Head. There are walking trails, tours and entry passes to historic buildings, including the Watch House in George Town’s main street, the amazing series of lighthouses and semaphore signalling stations. These buildings, along with the Low Head Pilot Station Precinct, are believed to be the first of their kind in Australia. Brochures are available from Reception.
