Launceston

— 1 night

The Heart of Tasmania

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.
On the 15th (Mon), appreciate the history behind Paterson Monument, then look for all kinds of wild species at Platypus House, then get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Seahorse World, and finally identify plant and animal life at Cataract Gorge Reserve. Keep things going the next day: walk around City Park, then explore the world behind art at Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, then take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and finally admire the verdant scenery at The Tamar Valley.

To find traveler tips, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Launceston road trip planning site.

Devonport to Launceston is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. In February, daytime highs in Launceston are 28°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to go by car back home.
