Interesting to see and hear the chimes, opposite the gorgeous Town Hall building.Visitors info centre next door. There are so many beautiful well maintained historic buildings in Launceston, all of which to see by foot. We spent 4-5 hours just walking round admiring them.

Orientation maps, accommodations, restaurants, historic landmarks and activities in this interesting city can all be found at the Visitors Centre. It saved me valuable time and labor to just go there first and follow its helpful guidance.
