Launceston: Small is Beautiful
Tasmania's compact second city is small enough to take in and scenic enough (with good coffee just a stone's throw away) to want stay for a while.
Pull up a chair, lean back with your favourite book and enjoy the complete absence of rush hour (under-rated!) Take a leisurely drive to the beautiful Cataract Gorge where, if you're lucky, you'll see rock climbers scale its sheer cliff walls. Visit and art gallery, enjoy a dinner on the refurbished waterfront and breathe in the clean crisp air. That's Tasmania!
