Hotel search

A variety of accommodation options await the traveller in Launceston. Centrally located hotels offer easy access to the main sites, which are never far way in this small city. Or you can chose to stay in the marina area for waterfront views. Couples looking for a romantic getaway can take their pick of cozy cottages in the Tamar Valley wine region.

Evandale

 

Evandale - only minutes from Launceston Airport - is full of character and perfect for visitors wanting quiet strolls through picturesque streets. Evandale’s colourful weekend markets, which sell everything from farmers’ produce to craft and bric-a-brac, are also a point of interest, and a good way to meet the locals.

 

Get a feel for country life by staying in renovated stables, or try boutique cottage accommodation for a home-away-from-home. Free parking areas for trailers make Evandale a good choice for those who plan to tour the rest of Tasmania this way.

Waterfront and West Side

 

Only minutes from the city centre by foot, Launceston's newly developed waterfront precinct affords views of the joining point of the Tamar and North Esk River. You will also be close to Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, as well as the cruise ship terminal.

 

Hotels in this area have a bright and fresh feel, in keeping with the style of the redeveloped marina, which is situated nearby. For close access to Cataract Gorge, there is an inn, with a more mountain-stay vibe.
