Things to do in Launceston
When it comes to the culture that Launceston has to offer, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery should be first on your bucket list. It is known to be the largest museum that is located outside of a capital city in Australia. The types of art that you can find in this museum, is colonial art, Tasmanian history and zoology collections.
Because sports are so important for Australian culture, it is a good idea to visit the York Park (Aurora Stadium) where Football, which is locally known as Footy, is played. The stadium holds 20,000 people and is an open stadium.
The City Park was established in 1820, and provides tourists with a nice opportunity to go for a hike through some of the architecture that Launceston has to offer.
The Tamar Valley is a vineyard, where you can go winetasting with your friends and family. It is set next to a river, so besides the wine, you will also be able to enjoy a beautiful view.
The Cataract Gorge is a stunning Canyon that you should definitely visit if you wish to relax and go sight-seeing during your stay in Launceston.
