Conquer Tassie

Plan your trip here - 3 days,  7 days and 14 days.

Launceston is brimming with eclectic collector shops and cool cafés. Gateway to Cradle Mountain, the Bay of Fires and more – it’s the perfect base to explore the surrounding area and meet the local characters for a yarn.

Kick off at local cellar doors in the Tamar Valley. At half time, head to Boag’s Brewery for a tour and enjoy a beer tasting to finish. Or traverse Cataract Gorge on a chairlift and browse the handmade wares at the Design Centre.

Bag a hole in one at Barnbougle golf course, followed by a rub down with views of the coastline from the day spa. Quiet back roads and world class mountain bike tracks complete the package for outdoor enthusiasts.

Lonely Planet also named Tasmania number four in the "Top 10 Regions in the World to Visit in 2015", so now is the time to grab a delicious taste of Tasmania.

This season’s winning ‘tip’ is to go behind the scenery and explore every corner.

The Festival is proud to bring some of the most respected singers from across Australia and overseas to our shores. For twelve years we have presented a remarkable program of performances and - uniquely - vocal workshops run by critically acclaimed artists, creating a Festival experience like no other.

Harvest Launceston Farmers Market

Every Saturday morning in the heart of the Tamar Valley, Harvest Launceston Community Farmers' Market brightens a quiet inner city car park and brings the farm gate to you. Meet the farmers, connect with locals and feast your eyes on baskets brimming with Tasmania's freshest seasonal produce, artificial hormone-free meat, organic dairy, artisan bread and pastries, bright summer berries or blushing autumn apples.

Savour a locally roasted coffee and taste your way around our foodie State at this vibrant weekly event before collecting a myriad of premium produce, cool-climate wines, artisan ciders and home-made preserves for the journey home.

Harvest Launceston Community Farmers' Market is held every Saturday from 8.30am until 12.30pm at 71 Cimitiere Street (car park opposite Albert Hall), Launceston.
