Information

Launceston is a city in the north of Tasmania, at the confluence of the North Esk and South Esk rivers where they become the Tamar River. The area surrounding Launceston is known as the Tamar Valley. Launceston is the second largest city in Tasmania after Hobart. Settled by Europeans in March 1806, Launceston is one of Australia's oldest cities and is home to many historic buildings.

The Cataract Gorge is Launceston's largest tourist attraction and is in close proximity to the city centre. It is home to the longest single span chairlift in the world, stretching 308 metres (1,010 ft) across the gorge.

Launceston has many parks throughout the city, with City Park featuring a large enclosure for Japanese Macaque monkeys. The Launceston General Post Office clock chimes every quarter-hour. Tasmania Zoo is also popular.
