My fiance and I have booked a 5 night stay in Launceston, peppers seaport, at the end of July. Neither of us have been to Tasmania before and are at a bit of a loss as to what there is to do in Launceston (especially as it will be the low-season and a lot of attractions seem to be closed). We aren't planning to hire a car if we can get away with it, but are open to day trips if the mood strikes us.
Does anyone have any ideas of what to see and do, places to eat, etc. Is Hobart too far for a day trip? Also, what is public transport like in Launceston?
We are keen to make it a low cost holiday, but do want to make it worthwhile and memorable. We are into wildlife, bushwalks, and generally enjoying nature, but also city and night life!
