The Snow Monkeys are a highlight

This is a nicely landscaped park close to the CBD and a pleasant place to relax and explore but the Snow Monkeys are the highlight with their antics.

Staying in Elizabeth Street it was an easy walk to City Park where we found the Macaqus Monkeys. It was very fascinating to watch them play. A must to visit.

Free exhibit and great to see the antics of these Japanese monkeys. We spent quite a bit of time watching them. Monkeys range from very young to the older ones.

We walked through the park and we thoroughly enjoyed looking at the Japanese Macaque Monkeys at play. The was park is beautiful and well worth a stroll through. Pretty flowers and trees. Paths are well marked.

It is worth making a trip to see the botanical gardens of Launceston. The monkeys were a surprise. While standing there some were entertaining the public, while others groomed each other, nonetheless I felt sad for them for being kept in such an enclosure on daily display. However I consider the beautiful gardens and surrounding heritage buildings an asset to... More

Nice place for a relaxing walk. The park is located near the central of Launceston and is very well maintained. Make sure you see the monkeys. There is a small train that runs through the park.
