The Town Clock, Launceston

#36 of 101 in Things to do in Launceston
Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
One of the most recognizable features in town, The Town Clock was installed in 1909 and features five bells imported from England. In 2011, the town officials considered stopping the clock from striking at night, as the sound bothered tourists staying in the city center. The plan was never carried out. Adjacent to the clock tower you'll find the town's visitor center.

  • Clock Tower is very visible for most of Launceston, it’s a real eye catcher when walking near the clock, attached to a grand building that doubles up as the post office. Architectural a great thing.....  more »
