Planning Your Visit
More than anywhere else in Australia, Tasmania enjoys four seasons, each with its own unique pleasures and appeal so there is no "best time" to visit. It all depends on what you want to see and experience. More >>
This website has been designed to make it easy to plan where to go and what to do. A wide range of destinations are presented, including some within Launceston and its suburbs, and others in the surrounding areas that are ideally visited by car or an organised tour. Many guided tours using a variety of transport options are available.
Around Launceston Tours
When planning a trip to Tasmania from another state or country, it is important to remember that as Tasmania is Australia's smallest state, there is no destination in Tasmania that is more than 5 drive from Launceston, and in fact most take half that amount of time to get to. Scenery in Tasmania changes from one region to another, so it is possible to sample a variety of Tasmania's vistas and landscapes within the space of a day or two spent out of Launceston.
