Greens Beach is a small settlement on the north coast of Tasmania, at the mouth of the Tamar River.  It's about an hour's drive from Launceston airport, which is less than an hour's flight from Melbourne, or a couple of hours from Sydney.  There's an uncrowded, sheltered swimming beach, a picturesque nine-hole golf course, public tennis courts, friendly locals, and access to a beautiful coastal trail through Narawntapu National Park, containing several even more secluded beaches.  And there's an abundance of unique native wildlife.  In fact, much to the delight of international visitors, kangaroos really do hop down the main street.  But Greens Beach is also the perfect base to explore northern Tasmania, with several internationally renowned vineyards within thirty minutes scenic drive along the famous Tamar Valley.  And it's less than a couple of hour's drive to two of Australia's top-ten golf courses at Barnbougle, plus dozens of national park walking trails through some of the world's most pristine wilderness areas.  So a week at Greens Beach can be as relaxing or adventurous as you like.
