Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Design Centre Tasmania, Fossil Bluff and Giant Penguin. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Marakoopa Cave and Liffey Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Mole Creek (Mole Creek Caves & King Solomans Caves), Burnie (The Hidden Fox, Penguin Observation Centre, &more) and Alum Cliffs (in Chudleigh). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Tamar River, admire the sheer force of Lilydale Falls, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and admire the landmark architecture of Franklin House.

For other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Launceston trip planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Launceston. In April, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to drive to Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park.
