About our home

Our city home is a stylish 1940's town house, with its own garden, just on the edge of Launceston city, and in walking distance to the centre of town.
Great place to unwind or to use as a touring base.
Launceston offers all that a modern, small city of 80,000 people provides. Excellent wining and dining, cafes for casual coffees or snacks, good shopping, and just a short distance away are fabulous vineyards with their great wine, including Velo, Nineth Island, Pipers River and so many more. Great food at some of them too!
Launceston offers excellent old architecture in its old commercial and residential buildings.
Try the historic Rosevears pub, Gravelly Beach or Beauty Point for fish & chips. Go up to Grindelwald for a fine meal or a lunch snack.
Watch sea horses & platypus at Beauty Point,
Walk the endless Greens Beach National Park beach.
Visit Launceston's Cataract Gorge, Mole Creek Caves, Liffey Falls, Ben Lomond, famous Cradle Mountain and Freychinet and do so much more. Travel further to Hobart and beyond.
Of interest is that a former Premier of Tasmania lived here and Prime Minister Bob Hawke had a beer in the kitchen.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We live in the bustling city of Launceston with its heritage homes and great eateries. All around there are boutique wineries. Our local scenery is superb.
Within walking distance of our house is the Cataract Gorge where the South Esk River dashes into the bottomless pool and out again on its way to the Tamar Estuary. Cafes and a restaurant. The chairlift with the longest single span in the world can take you across the pool or you can walk over the famous swing bridge. Admire the gardens and peacocks. In Summer, swim in the patrolled pool set in the lawns.
Walk through the Tamar wetlands to Tamar Island seeing the birdlife
Just a little afield, there are the beauties of Tasmania, one of the last places in the world where you can find undisturbed country, wild animals in their natural state, and marvellous scenery.
Be sure to visit Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, Freycinet, Friendly Beaches, the Bay of Fires, cute historic villages, the highlands, water falls. lavender farms, seahorse farm, cellar door sales, cheeseries.
