Launceston located in northern Tasmania is a popular tourist destination, famous for its Victorian architecture and striking natural scenery. Launceston is also an ideal base for visiting the Tamar Valley wineries and other nearby national parks and waterways.
Launceston is easily accessible driving from Hobart, or using Launceston airport. Launceston is also home to the popular Barnbougle Golf Course – set against the coastline and offering amazing views out to sea against the dunes.
For a bit of lavish fun, why not head to the Country Club casino. For a bit more of an action packed day head over to Zone 3 laser games, the indoor laser tag gaming centre.
Launceston whilst a relatively small and sleepy city does still offer an excellent array of hotels and serviced apartments, usually at very reasonable rates and good value for money for families especially.
