Though a compact region, Launceston and its accommodation won't disappoint

Launceston was established in 1805, seven years after the explorers Bass and Flinders first sailed up the Tamar River. What started life as an agriculture and trading hub has now flourished into Tasmania’s second most populated city, bursting with activity and fantastic accommodation to choose from.

Its compact centre is best enjoyed on foot, allowing you to linger over historic highlights such as the fountain at Princes Square, bought at the Paris Exhibition in 1858 and flanked by Georgian and Victorian buildings. 8km from the city centre, grand old Franklin House, a Georgian mansion built by convicts, is well worth visiting too.

Once your heritage craving has been sated there are plenty of epicurean diversions, from shops offering local foodstuffs and wines to the bohemian cafe strip around Charles Street and Boag’s Brewery, which can be toured or accessed with ease from your Launceston accommodation. Restaurants and cafes are threaded along the Seaport waterfront precinct, from where a boardwalk runs to Inveresk and the excellent Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery – Australia’s largest regional museum. 

Beyond Launceston, the river flows through beautiful Tamar Valley, home to some of Tasmania’s best cool-climate wineries. Its banks are crowded with orchards, vineyards and green pastures and are an excellent place to sample award-winning wines, and perhaps enjoy a light lunch. 

Head southwest from Launceston and experience the mystical plateaus of the Great Western Tiers, an area of great natural diversity that runs through the Meander Valley. This region is dotted with historic townships such as tiny Hagley, with its stately old buildings, and Westbury, a quaint 19th century town with a traditional village green and English country-style Maze and Tea Rooms.  

Deloraine, classified as a town of historical significance and now noted as a centre for Tasmanian arts and crafts, straddles the Meander River at the heart of the valley. Bushwalking, fishing and cycling are some of the outdoor pursuits found in the area.
