    Hadn't planned to visit the Gorge, but so glad we did. Amazing powerful flow from recent rains was breathtaking. Took advantage of the chair lifts and walked across the suspension bridge and out to wonderful lookouts on the scenic tracks along the gorge.

    Nice green space in the centre of town, with outdoor chess. Lovely big trees. Monkeys are an interesting addition. We managed to spend a bit of time enjoying being outdoors.

    I have just visited the QVM gift shop - absolutely fantastic. A huge range of Tasmanian created products of high quality with surprisingly good pricing. The assistant working there who’s name is Jimmy was so helpful and efficient. Do yourself a favour when visiting the museum….have a look at the shop - treasures abound there too.

    We drove on the eastern section of the Tamar Valley circuit in the morning and witnessed amazing views of the river, hills and historic towns. Western section on the way home but time was short by then. Plenty of wineries to choose from and the wine and cheese platters were great value. We got as far as Greens Beach which had sensational vistas across the bay and surf beach in the national park. Plan your trip as there is much to see and do and the day flies past....a spectacular drive through beautiful country settings and villages.

    This trip gives you a wonderful view of the whole area. It is also at a slow enough pace for you to look around and soak in all the sights. The staff at the chairlift were helpful and friendly.

    Left Launceston for our next destination and stopped here on the way through. One of the more beautifully presented wineries I've visited in Australia. Didn't have a booking but as we were first there the friendly and helpful staff gladly fitted us in. The tasting experience was quite good with some different and lovely wines. We bought several bottles here but they don't discount or waive the tasting fee 🤔. Didn't have time for lunch but the restaurant looked nice. Wasn't overly interested with their menu thought. However if you like your wine and food then definitely check it out.

    Saturday event only so checked it out even though it was a bit wet. Relatively small market but an interesting range of things. Also easy to move around. Tried some different rums and pleasantly surprised how good some were and bought a couple. Was a good morning to try a different coffee roaster as well. If you have the time on a Saturday in Launceston then worth a visit.

    This is a nice boardwalk when open. Unfortunately it has been closed several weeks now, and was again today. Apparently you can visit the toilets & visitor centre on certain days a week but not the walk. Flat and easy to navigate when you can do it. Always a chance of seeing some nice birds, and copperhead snakes in summer

    Even if you're a little bit sus about suspension bridges, you'll love this one offering incredible views over the Esk River especially if flood waters are raging down.

    The house is very well maintained and the gardens are beautiful. The house is filled with lots of historic treasures. It is a self guided tours, but there is lots of information around the house to explain about the house and its contents. You are greeted by a volunteer who gives you a brief history of the house and its previous occupants. Worth a visit.

    We visited Entally Estate when returning from Campbell Town. Not sure why its included under Launceston attractions when its some 16km distance. We got a feeling of history when we arrived at the carpark and spotted the mature trees and the attractive buildings from another era. Our visit was enhanced by the enthusiasm of the young lady who met us and gave a great overview of the history and the safety precautions that we should take when climbing the sharply angled stairs to the upstairs rooms. The place oozes history, the accessible rooms tastefully furnished in period style and aptly labelled. Remarkable treasures from a bygone era on display. More history outside, the chapel dating to 1840, the conservatory and walled garden, coach house and coach displays, stables and farmyard. Another highlight of Tasmania.

    We were visiting Australian relatives in Launceston and they recommended the gorge and we weren’t disappointed.
    On arrival from the car park the path round to the left and cross over the suspension bridge, stop in at the cafe for a coffee and scone. The peacocks are brilliant. Then continue on down alongside the river to the entrance into the gorge and the old iron bridge in Launceston, cross the bridge and then turn right following the path back into gorge working your way up the hill. It’s quite steep in parts but well worth the climb. You’ll eventually find yourself back at the entrance to the park. Finally, take a return journey on the old chair lift and cross over the gorge and back again, $20 adult return or $15 for OAPs.
    Highly recommended.
