Launceston is the second biggest city in Tasmania (after Hobart), attracting travellers from all over the state due to its abundance of natural beauty, historic buildings, and several wineries throughout the Tamar Valley region.
While you can fly directly into both Hobart and Launceston, it's also popular to road trip around the state because of its picturesque scenery, stopping in small, charming towns along the way. It's because of this that the Cradle Mountain to Launceston route is a popular one.
Getting from Cradle Mountain to Launceston is fairly easy and straightforward. Unfortunately, there is no commercial airport in Cradle Mountain so you're unable to fly between the two regions, however, there are two other options, self-driving or catching a bus/coach.
