Tasmania’s second major city after Hobart, Launceston is a vibrant hub for fantastic food, nature and culture.
With an estimated population of 70,000, it’s one of Australia’s oldest cities and excellently preserved.
Simply stroll along its streets and you’ll see classic Colonial and Victorian architecture − taking you back to the 1800s where it was a European settlement.
Situated near the city is the Tasmania Zoo, recognised for its wildlife conservation efforts and a breeding program for Tasmanian devils.
If you’re keen on seeing more wildlife, explore the nearby Narawntapu National Park, as well as Mt William National Park in the North East.
