Home > Tasmania > Launceston

Launceston and its river valley blend history, scenery, creativity, adventure, entertainment and the superb flavours of fine food and wine. Launceston is a city of contrasts - a short walk from the graceful Victorian-era facades is the scenic Cataract Gorge Reserve, with its tree rhododendrons and peacocks, fern glades and spacious lawns. It’s an adventurous city - try rock climbing and abseiling in Cataract Gorge. For quieter experiences, there’s the acclaimed Wood Design Collection, while the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Inveresk and Royal Park holds a fine collection of colonial art.

Launceston is renowned for its superb fine food and great entertainment - join the action at the Country Club Casino, catch an open-air concert at the Basin, and sip a Tamar Valley wine or a James Boag’s Premium, in one of the city’s award-winning bistros and restaurants.
