If you have the time take a boat journey up the River to the Batman Bridge. If you are lucky you will see the sea eagles soaring above you. If you have a car you can travel down one side the mouth of the river then cross the Batman bridge and return up the other side of the river.

In its day, this river would have been magnificant. But these days, it is full of silt and as such isnt as pretty as it may have once been. Looks great from a distance though and there are some lovely winerys worth visiting along its edges.

A beautiful drive along the river road is well worth it. The views are stunning as you drive round each new bend. Stop at the pub or cafe for a drink. Enjoyable and relaxing. A special are.

From downtown Launceston it is possible to access an easy walking path that provides views of the river as well as the harbor and industrial sites along it.

we were luck enough to be in Launceston on a beautiful winters day the sun was shining and we went for a stroll along the river. It is so beautiful and lots of interesting things to see along the way, lots of bird life.

This has a great selection of fine furniture and woodwork. The quality is amazing, the best I have ever seen. This is certainly worth looking at and if you want you can buy most things in the attached shop.

Start your walk from the iron Bridge at the Cataract Gorge, visit Old Flour Mill and galley then trough the park to the riverside and board walk.

We walked along the river near our hotel (Riverside Inn) and saw great birdlife, a stunning park and waters edge trails which I believe lead all the way into town. We could have packed a lunch (and thermos) and spent the whole day exploring with a budget of $0.
