Launceston is one of the prettiest cities in Tasmania, not so much hustle and bustle. The Architecture is very similar to Adelaide and we have been told both cities had the same Architect. As we live looking over this beautiful river one never gets bored...More

If you are staying in Launceston for a few days then a drive along both sides of this river is going to excite. Pleanty of wineries to tempt the taste buds.

My wife and I did a trip down the river with a small group of people. The day was calm so the ride was smooth. A very friendly knowledgeable guide/pilot. A lot to see and lots of history.
