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.
Popular historic sites such as Woolmers Estate and Entally Estate are in your itinerary. Visiting Cataract Gorge Reserve and Lilydale Falls will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Launceston: Coles Beach (in Devonport), Australian Axeman's Hall of Fame (in Latrobe) and Pipers Brook Vineyard (in Pipers Brook). There's lots more to do: admire the verdant scenery at The Tamar Valley, take in the pleasant sights at Bridport Walking Track, tour the pleasant surroundings at City Park, and take in the exciting artwork at Design Centre Tasmania.

Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent.
Get in touch with nature at Long Beach and Franklin River Nature Trail. You'll get in some beach time at Bellerive Beach and Seven Mile Beach. Explore Hobart's surroundings by going to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur). And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, explore the striking landscape of Maria Island National Park, contemplate the long history of Hobart Convict Penitentiary, and kick back and relax at Opossum Bay Beach.
