Greens Beach is a small settlement on the north coast of Tasmania, at the mouth of the Tamar River.  It's less than an hours drive from Launceston, at the northern end of the Tamar Valley, Tasmania's premier wine growing region, with some of Australia's most spectacular coastal walks and unspoilt secluded beaches.  The Solarhome is 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. At Greens Beach 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.  It's less than two hour's drive to one 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.
