The pretty village of Rosevears is located on the western banks of the Tamar River 18 km north of Launceston. It is part of a pleasant riverside drive which encompasses wetlands (with lots of birdlife including impressive black swans) and the quite outstanding Matthew Brady Lookout which affords outstanding views across the Tamar Valley.

The village was originally established a ship building port and there is a plaque on the water's edge where the Rebecca, the boat which carried John Batman across Bass Strait in 1835 and led to the creation of Melbourne, was built. Ask at the Rosevears Tavern for directions.
