Beechford is a tiny coastal hamlet of about 100 houses and only 70 permanent residents. Farmland surrounds the district. The Bridestowe Lavender Farm is within an easy drive, as is the historical Low Head Pilot Station, lighthouse, and penguin viewings. The world-famous Barnbougle and Lost Farm golf courses are less than an hour's drive. The Tamar Valley has vineyards and wonderful local food producers, cherries, berries, and more. Make sure to pick up some Tasmanian cheeses and smoked salmon, or maybe some oysters and crayfish (lobster). The Wine Trail will take you to wonderful vineyards such as Bay Of Fires vineyard, Pipers Brook, Delamere, with cellar-door sales. A pleasant drive over the Batman Bridge brings you to the vineyards and cellar doors of the West Tamar wine region.
There is no public transport to Beechford. Your own car (or hire) would be necessary. George Town is a short 15 minute drive, with shops, hotels, petrol stations, supermarkets and boat launching ramps. The nearest large airport is Launceston Airport, 75kms away.
