Located at the head of the picturesque Tamar Valley, the Launceston region is renowned for its award-winning wines, gourmet dining experiences, magnificent natural features and friendly residents.  Our city is human scale.  A series of green and wild spaces linked by heritage streetscapes and thoughtful adaptions.  A real blend of old-world and new, tradition and innovation.
