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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Entally Estate and The Low Head Lighthouse. Get some cultural insight at Bay of Fires Winery and Tamar Ridge Cellar Door. Venture out of the city with trips to Jansz Winery (in Pipers Brook), Rowella (Holm Oak Vineyards & Iron Pot Bay Vineyard) and Moores Hill Estate (in Sidmouth). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Brickendon Colonial Farm Village, admire the sheer force of Lilydale Falls, and learn about winemaking at Velo Winery & Cellar Door.

For traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Launceston trip itinerary planning website .

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Launceston is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Launceston. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in October: high temperatures in Launceston hover around 20°C and lows are around 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Coles Bay.
