New development and marina on the Tamar River
Founded in 1806, Launceston is the nation’s third-oldest city with a fascinating history traced in its beautiful old buildings and streetscapes dating from early Colonial and convict times to Georgian and Victorian eras. The city is situated at the junction of the North Esk and South Esk rivers where they join the Tamar River.
Launceston is a great stopping place to explore the towns north on the Tamar River, and the Midland towns of Evandale, Campbell Town, Ross and Longford.
