Launceston & The North

Australia - Tasmania

Famous for its crayfish and cheese and home to Tasmania’s second-largest city.
Located next to kanamaluka/River Tamar, a tidal estuary flowing north towards Bass Strait, the city offers plenty to do and see and is known for its festive food and beverages scene, the best cafes, and restaurants Tassie has to offer.
A short walk from the city centre, discover the Cataract Gorge, a unique formation in the lower section of the South Esk River, one of two rivers flowing into kanamaluka/River Tamar and home to walking and jogging tracks, wildlife, gardens, and the world’s longest single-span chairlift.
The northern region includes several, distinctly different national parks, including Mole Creek Karst, a network of limestone caves, Narawntapu, a haven for native wildlife and wukalina/Mt William and Ben Lomond National Parks.
