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.
Visiting Barnbougle Dunes and Platypus House will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre and House of Anvers Museum of Chocolate. Explore Launceston's surroundings by going to Coles Beach (in Devonport) and Woolmers Estate (in Longford). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Bridestowe Lavender Estate, explore the world behind art at Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, indulge your thirst for a good beer at James Boag Brewery Experience, and examine the collection at National Automobile Museum of Tasmania.
