Cycling – Tamar River | Tourism Tasmania | Rob Burnett

In a previous post we covered 8 reasons to visit Launceston and it seems that the virtues of Launceston have now been recognised internationally. The below article shows that Escape has awarded Launceston status as an undiscovered gem.

I must admit that I (Dale) am from Launceston and Jo is from Hobart – its a good thing that I actually prefer Hobart myself!

However Launceston real estate is cheaper, and Launceston is very good for families relocating.

Josef Chromy Wines which they mention below, has a superb restaurant where we have dined ourselves and they produce a huge range of wines which are available for tasting too.

If you want more information about where might be best for your move to Tasmania then get in touch with us directly and we can assist with a search for you, or a personal consultation.

Escape asks travel industry insiders to recommend their top off-radar destinations with these uncrowded alternatives to the perennial classics ready to
be seen in 2016.


Launceston is a gateway to the delights of northern Tasmania — Freycinet Peninsula, Tamar Valley vineyards, Cradle Mountain — while boasting shopping,
art galleries, convict history, and a foodie scene.

“Launceston is a 90-minute drive from the Spirit of Tasmania terminal in Devonport and the best thing about travelling on the refurbished ship is you can
bring your car and start discovering hidden gems like Cataract Gorge and Tasmania Zoo as soon as you arrive,’’ the ship’s communications manager, Soniya
Cooper, says.

“My favourite spot in Launie is Josef Chromy Wines where the views are spectacular.’’
