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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Sharmans Wines and Franklin House. Change things up with these side-trips from Launceston: Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre (in Beaconsfield), Seahorse World (in Beauty Point) and George Town (Bass & Flinders Centre & Mt George Lookout). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Entally House, walk around City Park, admire the sheer force of Lilydale Falls, and sample the tasty concoctions at James Boag Brewery Experience.
