Things To Do In Launceston


Have you had enough trips that consist of you travelling to countries that only provide modern city-life experiences? You might want to turn your attention towards Launceston for a change, as this location provides a more rustic setting that involves historic buildings. Launceston is considered to be one of Australia oldest cities. So before it gets too modernized, it would benefit you to visit here early.

Things To Do In Launceston

Launceston, a city that’s north of Tasmania. Wait… Tasmania? You mean the Tasmania devil? That’s not what I said but yes, you can see one over at the Tasmania Zoo, at 1166 Ecclestone Road Riverside, Launceston. While you’re there, and other than just sight-seeing, you can take up the opportunity to become a keeper yourself for day, working behind the scenes where most don’t get access to often.

Feeling lucky of all a sudden? Maybe, you can try your new found luck over at the Country Club Tasmania’s Casino. It’s a good experience for some casual fun, but always remember to play within your limits! If this would be your first time gambling, don’t be afraid to approach their game attendants, who will gladly guide you through the basics of a particular game you’re interested in.

For the artsy crowd, you can head down to Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, which contains exhibits for everyone to admire and appreciate, whether you are young or mature.


Finding accommodation

Hotels are in abundance here, and I’m seeing more stars on average this time. 4 stars to be exact. If budget is not a problem for you, you can go ahead and stay in a hotel. Otherwise, there are alternatives like an affordable motel stay or a cosy inn stay will suffice.


Eating out

If you want to try out Tasmania’s local favourites, you definitely can’t go wrong with beef! Simply delicious to consume, and you won’t regret from such a hearty meal. While you’re there, you might also want to try out their local produce such as their farm grown sweet grapes.
