Launceston Hotel Accommodation

The great outdoors right on your door step

Launceston, one of Australia’s oldest cities, is packed full of charm and beauty. Surrounded by mountains and with Cataract Gorge right on its doorstep, the city provides both wilderness, a hub of culture, rich history and delicious local produce.

Launceston is the second largest city of Tasmania. It is known for its wineries in the Tamar Valley, the Cataract Gorge and stunning Victorian buildings. The city is a cultural centre filled with modern cafes, museums, and parks. Because the city is small, it is very easy to explore. Launceston Seaport is known for its waterfront restaurants and cafes. Linked to the Seaport is Inveresk, home of some of the best galleries in Australia. The Queen Victoria Museum here is a must-see as well. Another great place to visit is the Home Point rowing course, another area famous for its restaurants and art galleries. There are several national parks and historical villages in Launceston. One of the most famous national parks here is Narawntapu, which is known for its frequent wildlife sightings. Launceston is approximately two hour's drive from Hobart.

Soak up the city’s beauty on a sunny day

Nestled in the mountains it can get cold and foggy in the city of Launceston, so the best time of year to plan your getaway is ideally during summer or spring. From December until March you will experience beautiful sunny days with the nights a littler cooler. This is also the busiest time of year, so book ahead!

Top 5 things to do when visiting Launceston

1. Explore Launceston’s star attraction, the Cataract Gorge. Admire the view, walk the trails, swim on a warm day, let your kids loose at the playgrounds or just chill out at one of the cafes. Watch your food though, as the local peacocks don’t mind sharing!

3. Step back in time with a trip to Penny Royal World
4. Discover the city’s waterfront and gorge during a relaxing cruise of the Tamar River
