Flights To Launceston

Ever been to Hobart? Well, Launceston says, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet”!

While Tasmania’s only inland city might not be as large as its rival, this little city promises quality over quantity. Are the parks truly greener here? The architecture more elegant? The chefs more daring? The locals certainly think so. Why not find out for yourself?

Taste the world-famous wines of the Tamar Valley, see the design-focussed buildings, and join residents in jogging through beautiful Cataract Gorge. We won’t tell Hobart you’re cheating, we promise. But don’t be surprised if no other city in Australia feels quite the same after your Launceston holiday. Come ready for a game-changer!

Getting Around Launceston

Flights to Launceston Airport land just 15km south of the city. A shuttle or taxi can take you anywhere in the city.

When You Land…

Are you on Launceston flights that land in the morning? Then start your day with an easy ride on the world’s longest single-span chairlift—right over Cataract Gorge. Touching down in the afternoon? See the famous Tasmanian Devils at the Tasmania Zoo.

If your flight lands after dark, head to Princes Square and check out the statue of Dr. William Russ Pugh, the first surgeon in the Southern Hemisphere to use general anaesthetic. Perhaps he’ll inspire you to get a good night’s rest at your Launceston accommodation!

Live Like a Local

A favourite of the locals, the Tama Island Wetlands offer a boardwalk through the wetlands, barbeques for grilling up your favourite meal and wildlife sightings left and right. Bring a camera!
