How to Spend 2 Days in Launceston

How to Spend 2 Days in Launceston

With two days in Launceston, you’ll have time to see the best of this riverside city plus enjoy a wine-tasting experience or outdoor activity in the surrounding region. Here are a few ways to create a 48-hour itinerary that suits your preferences.

 

Day 1: Local attractions

**Morning:**Begin your stay in Launceston with a visit to a cultural, historic, or wildlife attraction. Options include the Queen Victoria Museum, the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania, and Seahorse World—purchase skip-the-line tickets in advance to save time.

 

**Afternoon:**Head to Hollybank Forest Reserve, and explore the lush canopy on a Segway or treetop zipline course. If you prefer to be on the water, opt for a Cataract Gorge cruise or a canoe tour of the Tamar River.

 

**Night:**Learn about the area’s history and natural environment on an evening walking tour of Cataract Gorge, then unwind over dinner at one of the popular seafood eateries in town along the waterfront.

 

Day 2: Surrounding scenery

**Morning:**Treat yourself to a hot-air balloon flight over the Tamar Valley’s hills and vineyards to start your day on a high note. Some tours even include breakfast. If you’re on your way to Hobart, a 1-way tour from Launceston stops by top attractions like Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay.

 

**Afternoon:**Discover Tasmanian varietals on a tour of the Tamar Valley wine region, with transportation provided so you don’t have to drive between tastings. Experiences at individual wineries such as Josef Chromy Wines offer a more in-depth look at local wine making.  

 

**Night:**Make your way to Penny Royal Adventures near Cataract Gorge for drinks or dinner at the on-site tavern, restaurant, or wine bar. If you arrive early enough, take advantage of the complex’s family-friendly activities such as rock climbing, rope-bridge walking, and cliff jumping—or go on a ghost tour.
