Launceston is the major city in the north of the state nestled amongst rolling hills and vineyards and is conveniently located close to popular wilderness areas such as Cradle Mountain and the Asbestos Ranges National Park. The Gorge in Launceston is also a popular place for students to explore with its walking trails and swimming holes.

Read on for must-sees & must-dos while in Launceston.


Launceston is a cosy town filled with history and culture – both old and new – as well as many sites to move you closer to nature. The Tamar Valley and George Town with its quiet waters, waterbird life, as well as the town’s rich historical buildings of Beaconsville are certain to help you unwind. Also worth your visit is the Old Launceston Seaport and National Parks of Narawtapu and Mole Creek Karst.

For a closer engagement with the fine arts and culture of the region, your stay in Launceston would not be complete without a visit to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, and Design Centre of Tasmania.

In 1883 James Boag began a brewing tradition on the banks of the Esk River that would transcend decades. Today you can visit the Boag's Brewery, a popular attraction for tourists to Tasmania.

Shopping Precincts

With seven days of shopping malls/centres, lanes and boutiques, there is no doubt that your shopping experience in Launceston will be a relaxed one. You could spend a whole day at the busy Brisbane Street Mall and Quadrant Mall in the CBD.

Transport options

There are 6 bus companies touring the city of Launceston, though it is suggested to buy a local bus pass as one way of cutting costs of getting around. Renting a car is also a cost-effective option bearing in mind the vagaries of the transport system.

Dining out

The Old Launceston Seaport is home to many cosy cafes and restaurants. If you are up for a livelier night, try many of the dining options available in Launceston’s CBD.


For entertainment in Launceston, watch one of the many spectacular shows at the Princess Theatre. A couple hour dirve away from Launceston lies the infamous Wrest Point Casino.
