Top Attractions Within Launceston

Launceston is one of the oldest cities in Australia, and is the second largest city in Tasmania. The city is full of beautiful architecture and historic landmarks, and provides great access to the rest of tasmania's scenery. The best way to see Tasmania is to book a flight to Launceston and drive around at your own pace by booking the best deal on car rental from CarHire.com.au.

With a coolish climate, you will still find that Launceston has 4 distinctive seasons. This allows you to plan your holiday around the seasons and therefore decide if you would rather visit Launceston in the cooler or warmer months.

After flying into Launceston airport and picking up your car rental, you can travel to the beautiful Tamar Valley. The Tamar Valley is described as having a similar climate to that of the South of France. The Tamar Valley wine trail is a driven tour that can take 4 hours without stopping or a full day depending on your time and inclination. If driving through the Beauty Point area you should see the Seahorse Farm which is the only one of its kind!

Fill up your car rental's tank, then fill up your camera's memory card at the stunning Cataract Gorge. After that, why not head over to the famous Boag's Brewery and join a tour to find out about (and sample) some of the finest beers that Australia has to offer. If you're feeling brave enough, join a ghost tour and find out more about Launceston's convict past (don't worry - you don't need to drive your car rental around Launceston for this one... it's a walking tour!)

The scenery, the climate, and the atmosphere is a great reason why Launceston is a popular tourist spot in Tasmania.
