With a well-preserved cultural heritage and buildings dating back hundreds of years, you will be enchanted by the historic charm of Launceston. As one of the oldest cities in the entire country, Launceston gives visitors a glimpse of what Australia must have been like during its early colonial days.
The city’s deliciously cool climate and beautiful landscape have made it one of Tasmania’s premier tourist destinations, even giving the state capital Hobart a run for its money. Located in the north of Tasmania on the Tamar River, it has the second-highest population in the state, with around 80,000 people calling Launceston home. Famed for its scenic countryside and quality food and wine scene, this lively riverside town is a preferred destination for self-driven holidays, offering the perfect gateway to the Tamar Valley, a stunning wine region, and several national parks.
Before beginning your road trip from Launceston, go for an easy stroll along the walkway through Royal Park and around the city centre, or visit the scenic Cataract Gorge, a short distance from downtown and well worth the visit. The Gorge is home to the world’s longest single-span chair lift, beautiful well-kept gardens, a suspension bridge with panoramic lookouts and a myriad of walking and hiking trails.
Hiring a campervan in Launceston offers a unique way of exploring not just the city but the whole of northern Tasmania and beyond; with your very own campervan or motorhome, you can go sightseeing in Launceston one day then head for the countryside the next. With the freedom to plan your own itinerary and stop whenever you feel like it, there’s no better way to discover Tasmania.

- Tasmania Zoo – From koalas to crocodiles, Tasmania Zoo has the largest collection of both native and exotic animals in the state. With over 100 species of cute critters, the zoo covers 900 acres of bushland in the Tamar Valley. There are daily animal feeding sessions and activities suitable for all ages, and tasty snacks can be purchased from the Meerkat Munchies Café. Perfect for families and animal lovers, Tasmania Zoo is just 18 kilometres from Launceston. To get there, simply take the West Tamar Highway and exit onto Ecclestone Road.
- Ben Lomond Mountain – Towering over the northern midlands of Tasmania, Ben Lomond Mountain is one of the highest accessible points in the state. Dominated by a huge alpine plateau, it’s stark landscape is ideal for skiing and snowboarding during the colder months of the year, and it’s just over an hour’s drive from Launceston. There are walking trails carved into the side of the mountain, but if you’d rather drive, a road known as Jacob’s Ladder goes all the way to a ski village located on the plateau. Considered one of the most scenic drives in all of Tasmania, the view from Jacob’s Ladder is breathtaking.
- Tamar Valley Wine Region – No road trip to Launceston would be complete without exploring the Tamar Valley wine region. Northern Tasmania’s cool climate is perfectly suited to wine making, and several of Australia’s finest labels are produced in this famously picturesque region. With pretty orchards, rolling green fields and charming vineyards, the Tamar Valley was made for relaxing road trips. Wine tasting tours are available throughout the area, and there’s also several day spas, golf courses and campervan-friendly accommodation options.
