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.

Change things up with these side-trips from Launceston: Beauty Point (Platypus House & Seahorse World), Loira Vines (in Sidmouth) and Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre (in Beaconsfield). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Cataract Gorge Reserve, pause for some serene contemplation at The Pilgrim Uniting Church, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and learn about winemaking at The Pinot Shop.
