Launceston Tours & Holidays

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

Surrounded by mountains and rolling hills, the Tamar River valley opens north to Bass Strait just 58 kilometers away. 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. Launceston is the perfect base for exploring the cool-climate vineyards of the Tamar Valley and national parks such as Narawntapu (known for wildlife spotting) and Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair.

I had the best time doing the Overland Track in February with our guides Josh and Louis. We had mostly amazing weather, a great group of people and overall a really enjoyable experience in beautiful surroundings.

Highlights of Tasmania

Jennie · Traveled February 2024
Thoroughly enjoyed the Highlights of Tasmania tour. Although only 6 days we saw so much and had such full & fun days it seemed much longer (in a good way!). There was so much beauty. There was the right mix of history, pretty places, hiking and animal sightings.
