You don’t have to travel far from the city of Launceston to visit vineyards, lavender fields, historic estates, nature reserves, wildlife sanctuaries and mountain biking towns. If you’re travelling for business, stay central at Sebel, Mantra or Grand Chancellor hotel. If you’re here to relax let your accommodation be part of the experience at a boutique heritage house or converted grain silo hotel. The kids will love Leisure Inn Penny Royal with abseiling and a pirate ship all part of the fun.
Take a drive to World Heritage-listed Brickendon and Woolmers Estates at Longford, where you’ll find historic bed and breakfasts amidst Tasmania’s gently rolling countryside. Drive out to Derby - a small country town which has become a mountain biking mecca, offering self-contained cabins, cottages and lodges for the ultimate adrenaline holiday. After a tour to the world-class Tamar Valley wine region, relax in a boutique lodge by the fire place to savour the fine wines from your cellar door visit.
