Exeter is a small junction town near the Tamar River that is encounted when traveling to Beaconsfield from Launceston (or vice versa). Exeter is a bit of a dot of a place that qualifies for the synopsis.
Although it is an important town for the local area - it lies at the centre of a large area noted for its orchards, dairy and beef cattle and its sheep herds - it has little of historic interest and is commonly passed through by travelers eager to explore the historically significant Beaconsfield and Beauty Point to the north.
The only building in the town of any interest is the Methodist Church, a handsome timber building, which, having been completed in 1861 is the oldest Methodist Church in Tasmania. While it is hardly an impressive building it is an important moment in the history of this part of Tasmania.
5 km south of Exeter on the West Tamar Highway is Brady's Lookout. It is a delightful irony that this rocky outcrop, once used by the bushranger Matthew Brady to spy on possible victims on the road below, is now a panoramic lookout across the Tamar Valley.
