Tasmania’s “northern capital” of Launceston was established in 1806 by free settlers. It has fine Victorian buildings from the 1870s and 1880s and elegant contemporary architecture. The unique attraction of Cataract Gorge is a natural wonder only a 15-minute walk from the city centre, and not far from the J Boag and Son brewery. Cool climate wines and fine dining are the essence of the new Launceston experience and the city is a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding region. The tidal River Tamar flows north from Launceston to George Town and Bass Strait, past forested hills and pastures, lavender plantations, vineyards, strawberry farms and orchards. Excellent restaurants, superb boutique wineries and simple roadside stalls ensure every appetite is indulged and this idyllic setting will satisfy other interests too, from history enthusiasts to nature lovers. You can explore by road or cruise the long curve of the Tamar River.

It is now an important part of cultural life in Launceston and also a heritage park. The park’s attractions include many gardens and a Monkey Island, which houses a group of macaques that are separated from visitors by a glass wall and small moat. The park also has memorials and statues. One of these statues is of Ronald Campbell Gunn–botanist, public servant, and politician. The most prominent building at the park is the Albert Hall. The park plays host to Festivale, a popular annual food festival held every year in February.
