City Park, Launceston
(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
City Park is a heritage park containing the city's botanic gardens, radio museum, gallery of wood design and furniture, and an enclosed colony of macaque monkeys. The park's monorail operates on most days and is a popular tourist attraction, taking visitors around the area's most notable landmarks. The most prominent buildings at this location are Albert Hall, which was built in 1891; a convention center; and the studios of City Park Radio. The studios are located inside a cottage that once served as the park caretakers' home, and still boast one of the oldest wisteria wines in Australia, planted in 1837.

  • This is a lovely, well-kept park in the middle of the city that's not too big and is home to numerous trees. The rhododendrons were in full bloom when I visited - what a magnificent colour palette.

  • It's well looked after it has open spaces for kids to run around in also a play area for the younger kids has a pond with ducks & gold fish it has an amenities block also the biggest draw card are the monkeys in their own purpose built enclosure & information cards telling you about them & the history of them. It's close by the cbd also the car & bike museum. All in walking distance of each other
  • Really beautiful and peaceful park that my family and i really enjoyed. It is very well kept and the massive old trees give it such a great feel. Our son enjoyed the playground and we loved how the whole garden is fenced so we didn't have to worry about kids wondering off onto the road. We loved it
  • A Beautiful park with a huge trees and different species of plants. A perfect place for picnic and other activities. A well maintained green space within the town.
  • Good park. There is a garden inside a building. Also there's a mini zoo with Japanese monkey in it. You can get in for free
  • A grand, peaceful old park that is even more delightful with some monkeys added in. A stop to the monkey enclosure is essential
