Launceston Boardwalk (Rob Burnett)
Located in the centre of northern Tasmania, at the head of the beautiful Tamar Valley, is Tasmania’s second largest city, Launceston. Exploring this city is easy, and you don’t have to go far to be amazed by the natural attractions, including Cataract Gorge. Launceston is a great base for exploring the vineyards, as well as the surrounding national parks.
Visit the scenic city of Devonport, home port to the Spirit of Tasmania and where the Mersey River flows into Bass Strait. This welcoming city has cosmopolitan restaurants, boutiques and galleries and a fascinating Science Centre.
In the far North West are the towns of Smithton and Stanley, the perfect location for exploring the forests and coastlines of the west coast. Stanley is home to The Nut, remnants of an ancient volcanic plug. Enjoy a walk to the summit or take the chairlift to experience the amazing views across Bass Strait. Discover the pristine wilderness of the Tarkine or walk through the Dismal Swamp maze with themed boardwalk trails guiding you through the forest.
