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. An important shipping and trade hub since the late 19th century, the city also possesses some fine examples of late colonial architecture, while the more modern "Brutalist" style is relatively rare. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Launceston and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Launceston

Many visitors to Launceston choose to settle into one of the area's spacious rental apartments, which offer large rooms and plenty of privacy. Equally comfortable, the city's centrally located four-star hotels include onsite restaurants and air-conditioned rooms with flat-screen TVs and satellite channels.
