Launceston holidays

Tasmania’s second biggest city, Launceston, is known as the ‘garden city’ because of its abundance of well-established beautiful public and private gardens. Surrounded by a wealth of natural wonders and the Tamar Valley, a wine-producing district, the city is the ideal base for exploring Tasmania’s north-east, including the world class Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm golf courses. Within walking distance to the centre of the city is Cataract Gorge, a wilderness area with walkways, abundant wildlife and a popular summertime swimming spot.
