Launceston Tours & Vacations

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.

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.

Quality tour with way more in the itinerary than expected. Our tour guide Anthony was brilliant at hosting and his local knowledge and inviting, calm personality made this trip both comfortable and memorable. Tasmania has so much to offer and this tour covers so much of all the magnificent regions - Coastal, Tarkine, Wine and Colonial. My first tour with Intrepid and I will be booking with them again. The small group of just 11 and all the meals, accomodation and almost all entry fees included made it easy to just sit back and enjoy although this is a busy and full schedule 9 day tour with a good balance of hikes and little luxuries. Value for money. Anthony was an exceptional host - professional, organised, knowledgable, friendly, approachable and went the extra mile to ensure we all enjoyed our tour. He is certainly working the dream job for him and it shows. Intrepid are fortunate to have him representing them he made our tour. Thank you Anthony I truly believe our trip was elevated to the next level when we were allocated you as our Leader.

If you are looking for trip that has a tour guide who is knowledgeable and engaged, this is not that trip, The transportation was sub par - clean but not large enough for comfort for the length of the trip. Food is not included and the recommendations on restaurants were not very good so do your own research. We expected more for this price point. It had a mid level but not mid level services.
