1 night Launceston? Where to stay and go.

Quick weekend away with hubby. Arrive Launceston Sat 8am and flight out Sun 1pm.

Should we stay in Launceston?

We love scenic drives, little quaint old towns, food and wine.

My thoughts at present:

1) Drive the Tamar Wine route stopping at a couple of vineyards and having lunch somewhere nice (any suggestions) and come back to Launceston for the evening. Is this even feasible? Where in Launceston should we stay. Somewhere very nice please with easy access to somewhere nice for dinner.

2) Drive to Sheffield. Know nothing about it but the town looks so quaint and the scenery stunning. Either stay somewhere around there?? or do we head back to Launceston??

Lots of questions so any suggestions appreciated.

Oh, this is for end of November

Many thanks,

I think you find more to see and do in Launceston - and greater choice of accommodation and food.

The wine route is easily doable in a part day. Concentrate on the west Tamar shore. Somewhere like Rosevears or Strathlynn would be good for lunch. Or Moore's Hill for a lighter lunch.

Best B&B in town is Kurrajong House on top of the hill behind the CBD.

Best hotel is The Charles in uppeer Charles Street near the hospital.

Both within walking distance of the city centre.
