Launceston

Tasmania has a reputation for beautiful natural landscapes, superb produce, award-winning wines.

Launceston blends the relaxing charm and pace of a small city with the modern facilities, entertainment options and accommodation of a much larger metropolis. Founded in 1806, it is Australia’s third-oldest city. Launceston’s rich and colourful history is on display in its beautiful old buildings and streetscapes, which date from early Colonial and convict times through the Georgian and Victorian eras. These beautiful buildings continue to thrive with the vibrancy of Launceston’s commercial and social networks, from prestigious banking institutions and high-tech firms to fashion houses and restaurants.
