Launceston Tours & Holidays

Launceston is Tasmania’s second-largest city and the gateway to the Tamar Valley

A city where historic streetscapes and century-old parks and gardens sit beside revitalized areas such as the Launceston Seaport with its restaurants and cafes. A boardwalk links the Seaport to Inveresk where you can visit one of Australia’s best regional galleries, the Queen Victoria Museum. It's the perfect base for exploring the cool-climate vineyards of the Tamar Valley, national parks such as Narawntapu (known for wildlife spotting) and Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair.

Tasmanian Explorer

Kevin · Traveled January 2024
The Tasmanian Explorer exceeded expectations with stunning coastlines, beautiful national parks, quaint villages and modern cities. Our group leader Anthony was born in Rosebery, raised in Hobart, and has worked all over Tasmania. His ability to weave personal anecdotes, stories, music, and surprises into the itinerary was magical. Absolutely outstanding. As usual we had a fun group of well-traveled fellow travelers. The island under down under definitely didn’t disappoint.

Beautiful trip with a fun group! The trip does involve a lot of driving. Those wanting a more relaxed trip might consider a trip focused on a specific region like Hobart and the east coast.

Trek the Cradle Mountain Overland Track

Andrea · Traveled January 2024
The local operator Tasmanian Hikes, Senna -the owner- and the guides -Louie and Josh- went above and beyond to make the 6 days trekking in the Overland Track a positive experience in every single way. Great organisation and combination of professionalism & friendliness. Senna provided very sound and helpful advice about the right gear to pack and prepared delicious, healthy and nutritious food to keep your energy going on the track. Josh and Louie are experienced and knowledgeable guides and have great group leadership skills. I cannot fault Tasmanian Hikes! Well done Intrepid for partnering with them.
