Launceston was settled in the early 1800's at the point at which the North and the South Esk Rivers meet and form the Tamar River as it flows through the Tamar Valley to Bass Strait. Cataract Gorge, the place at which the South Esk enters Launceston, is a popular walking and recreation area well worth a visit. The city of Launceston itself is very historic and offers a wide range of accommodation. Since it is not a large place, any hotel in the downtown area (within one Km of central Launceston) puts you in walking distance of some great restaurants, Cataract Gorge and the Brisbane Street Mall.
Downtown Budget Hotels worth checking out are the Batman Fawkner Inn, Alanvale Apartments Launceston, Country Comfort Inn Coach House and Sandors on the Park. Check the Hotels in Launceston listing for others.
More upscale hotels in the downtown area include Hotel Grand Chancellor Launceston, the Mercure Launceston and the Leisure Inn Penny Royal Hotel Apartments, Launceston.
The Country Club Villas Launceston is a little way out of town, but its range of facilities is first class, as is the golfing. The hotel is set among lakes and natural bushland and is a great base for exploration of the Tamar Valley vineyards.
A lot of the attractions of Launceston and the entire Tamar Valley area are withing easy driving distance of the city, so staying downtown as your hub for the whole area is probably the way to go.
It is a short drive from Launceston to the Tamar Valley Wine Region, the Lavender Farm and Woolmers Estate and Brickendon, some of the best preserved colonial historic mansions in Tasmania.
Always worth considering is the Mercure Launceston . Situated right in the heart of downtown Launceston, it offers excellent access to shopping and represents very good value for money.
