Launceston should be Tasmania's second biggest city, but life there reminds of rural city lifestyle. As for cosmopolitan attitudes, Launceston was far behind, but during the past years the weary impression changed to social vitalization, preparation for tourists and creation of intellectual food facilities. Meanwhile Launceston became a beautiful city for spending some inexpensive days, and there are several places in the surroundings worth sightseeing, wine connoisseurs will have chances there as well as history favouring people.

The compact centre of Launceston is offering many cultivated shopping facilities for taking refreshments in cafés and bistros amidst stimulating public parks.

Launceston has a museum, which is distributed to two buildings, the Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery. Both institutions are designed to fit the needs of children and handicapped people.

Ever since 1881, the Boag's Brewery is brewing beer especially popular in Northern Tasmania. You should apply in good time if you want to visit the brewery.

The City Park allows you to have a realistic experience of the 13 ha Victorian garden's charm and elegance taking you to a different century.

Launceston has an airport for regional flights as well, thus trips from Sydney or Melbourne can easily and uncomplexly be arranged.
