Travel Blogs from Launceston
Joined TravelPod so that we can read the blog of our son-in-law Mark Rathmell, based on his current trip following the 2014 Tour de France.

We'll use it for our trip (to South America?) next year.
... certainly was a lovely peaceful ride across the river while we sat and watched some energetic people below jogging their way up the pathways to the top of the gorge. Once on the other side of the river we walked along a path that followed the river to take in the views below us and the surrounding gorge. Near the restaurant on the lawn we found a bench under a tree, ate our oranges and relaxed while we watched peacocks ...

Fabulous place to stay. Quaint with all the little touches which make you feel relaxed and special, including port and choccies on arrival and a well stocked breakfast pantry. The resident cats, birds and chooks make you feel at home as well. A quiet and peaceful oasis in the middle of a lovely city. Highly recommended.
