Although the second largest city in Tasmania after Hobart, Launceston definitely shouldn't be anything but first on anyone's travel list. A quaint and accessible town with a cool temperate climate and four distinct seasons, Launceston is rapidly becoming one of Australia's most sought-after places to live and visit.

Discover Launceston

Culturally and artistically diverse with a vibrant food and wine scene, cool-climate wineries, stunning scenery and some of Australia's most historic and beautiful early European style architecture, Launceston is one of those rare places you'll never want to leave.

What are the must-see attractions in Launceston?

If it's art and culture you're after, then the Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery is well worth a visit. Occupying two different locations, this is the largest regional museum in Australia. First settled by Europeans in 1806, Launceston also has some stunning buildings dating from early in the colony's history - well worth a self-guided heritage tour.

Held every Saturday morning, Harvest Launceston is a fresh food market that showcases some of Tasmania's finest produce, making it a must see for any serious foodie. Walk amongst fields of lavender at Bridestowe Lavender Estate, or marvel at the iconic Tasmanian Devils at Trowunna WIldlife Park.

Yet it's not just that city itself that makes Launceston so special. As with most places in Tasmania, natural beauty is never far away. Just minutes from the city centre, Cataract Gorge presents an accessible slice of wilderness for those short on time, while the breathtaking Tamar Island Wetlands on the beautiful Tamar River are only ten minutes drive away from the heart of the CBD.
