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.

Get out of town with these interesting Launceston side-trips: Mt George Lookout (in George Town), Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre (in Beaconsfield) and Platypus House (in Beauty Point). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Cataract Gorge Reserve, walk around City Park, appreciate the views at The Tamar Valley, and explore the fascinating underground world of Gunns Plains Caves.
