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.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Tue): view the masterpieces at Design Centre Tasmania and then tour the pleasant surroundings at City Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: appreciate the views at The Tamar Valley, look for gifts at Gourlay's Sweet Shop, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Cataract Gorge Reserve.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, kick back and relax at Bellerive Beach, steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, and take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
