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. Use our Australia tourist route planner to plan your trip to Launceston and other destinations in Australia.
