Tasmania - Launceston & Around (Chapter)
This is the Launceston & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Tasmania guidebook.
It’s hard to imagine a pocket-sized city more lovely than Launceston. Large enough to feel sophisticated, but petite enough for small-town friendliness, it melds historic and contemporary, urbane with country character, and has lively epicurian and arts scenes to boot.
- marvel at the wilds in the city in Launceston’s Cataract Gorge
- spot the world’s tiniest penguins come home from sea at dusk at Low Head
- restaurants and accommodation
- quaff fine wines at the many vineyard cellar doors of the Tamar Valley
Coverage includes: Launceston, Tamar Valley, Legana & Rosevears, Exeter, Batman Bridge, Beaconsfield & Around, Beauty Point, Narawntapu National Park, George Town, Low Head, Pipers River Region, Lilydale, Hadspen & Carrick, Westbury; Liffey Valley, Longford, Evandale and Ben Lomond National Park.
