THINGS TO SEE, DO AND EXPERIENCE DURING YOUR

VISIT

Tasmania's second earliest established city in 1806, and Australia's third oldest city, Launceston is rich in its historical architecture, food and arts culture, and the university community. Launceston is also home to one of Tasmania, if not Australia's, most unique geographic landmarks - the Cataract Gorge next to the heart of the cities CBD.

The city is also home to some incredible heritage, found at the various museums and art galleries, in its architecture, the first-ever hydropower station in the Southern Hemisphere, Duck Reach, and more!
