The Town Clock, Launceston

4.0
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.
