LAUNCESTON

and the Tamar Valley

Launceston, with a population of about 100,000 has plenty to offer including cultural and sporting venues, interesting country towns nearby, historical buildings and the natural bushland setting of the cataract gorge virtually in the city. With The Tamar Valley tourism and wine region to explore Launceston is a very popular tourist destination.

 

ABOVE: Launceston City from the air looking west.  The City Park is at the bottom centre.  Brisbane Street, the main street, is to the left of the park.  The North Esk river is on the right which flows into the Tamar River in the centre of the picture.  The South Esk river flows through the spectacular Cataract Gorge ending at the yacht basin.  Virtually all of the Great Western Tiers can be see on the horizon.
