Launceston

The Heart of Tasmania

Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Venture out of the city with trips to Holm Oak Vineyards (in Rowella), Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre (in Beaconsfield) and Sidmouth (Moores Hill Estate & Loira Vines). There's lots more to do: stroll around City Park, do a tasting at Devil's Corner Cellar Door, identify plant and animal life at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at James Boag Brewery Experience.
