You know what they say about old dogs learning new tricks? Well, Launceston may be the second-oldest city in Tasmania, but this well-seasoned region is always adding something new to the landscape. So it turns out you can improve on an old thing!
Amid the century-old parkland and Colonial architecture you’ll find fantastic wine bars, sensational eateries and modern golf courses—all of which provide welcome reminders that you are indeed in the 21st century. Instead of booking a room at a name brand hotel, give one of the charming Launceston boutique hotels a chance. These cute places have heaps of personality and give you plenty of privacy—all in all, they’re a peaceful reprieve from high-rise hotels and packed swimming pools.
Go ahead, settle into Launceston boutique accommodation, whether it’s Hatherley Birrell Collection, Peppers Seaport Hotel, or another quaint hotel in northern Tasmania. Take off your shoes and let your toes breathe a little. Ahhh…now put those trainers back on and get to exploring!
Greater Launceston is home to the stunning Cataract Gorge and all of its beauty. Just 15 minutes from the centre of Launceston, you can walk along riverbanks and ride the Southern Hemisphere’s longest chairlift in between visits to the vibrant peacocks and a leisurely picnic lunch.
Next, pack it up and head indoors for a lovely tour of the Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery—or wander through the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania. You can’t take the wheels for a spin, as they say, but you can snap photos and keep dreaming. After a walk through the iconic City Park, head back to your boutique accommodation in Launceston and rest up for another day of exploration.
It’s easy to eat, drink and be merry in Launceston, because the Tamar Valley region is known for its award-winning wine. Get on a coach tour or choose a friend to be your designated driver. Once you see the beauty and bounty of the valley, you’ll want to be sipping vino all afternoon. Go ahead, get a little tipsy and take a bottle to go.
Once you’re back in the CBD, introduce your taste buds to free-range beef at Black Cow Bistro or sink your teeth into some seafood at Mud Bar and Restaurant. Once you’re filled to the brim, get your travel mates to roll you back to one of the cosiest boutique Launceston hotels for a good night’s rest.
