Spend so time in Launceston city and visit the Cataract Gorge with is beautiful gardens and the longest single span chairlift in the world.
Today we travel south along the Heritage Highway to small rural village of Bothwell. Why? Because Bothwell is home to Australia's oldest public golf course, Ratho. Built in 1822 by the Reid Family the fairways are mowed by sheep and the greens are fenced to keep them out. The added bonus in Bothwell is the "Nant" single malt whiskey distillery. In 2012, just four years after beginning commercial production, Nant Single Malt Whisky was catapulted to global renown when Jim Murray, the world’s foremost whisky commentator, scored Nant Single Malt Whisky – American Oak Bourbon Wood 95.5 out of 100. This rarest of scores saw Nant rated among the top 50 whiskies in the world. With a few of those under your belt it will be a fun trip back to our accommodation!
Today is your last day in Tassie and depending on flight times we may squeeze in a game at the Launceston Country Club Casino before airport transfers.
