Launceston has a strong sense of identity. It is a unique mix of vibrant culture, contemporary arts, striking architecture, stunning scenery and enviable lifestyle. Yet Launceston’s locals are famously unaffected and friendly.
Whether you crave the city, coast, country or wilderness, you can find your little bit of everything right here. Enjoy the picturesque Cataract Gorge (15 mins by foot from the heart of the city) from the comfort of the pool or hanging from a climbing rope off its rugged cliffs. Or settle in for an afternoon at an atmosphere-soaked cafe after a tough day shopping in our funky boutiques. Or head to the beach for the day and earn yourself a bucket-full of raspberries, picked fresh from a berry farm on the way home.
