My impressions of Launceston.
a big country town

... lead down to the river & gorge. The paparazzi in us were out in force taking photos of the local wildlife, the scenery & of course selfies. The gorge and surrounding parks we're beautiful & I loved every bit until we got to the suspension bridge.

I had decided earlier in the day that I was going to go to the Symphony under the stars concert in City Park this evening. A free outdoor concert by the Tasmanian ...
... We then set out to hike to Cataract Gorge, a large gorge basically inside the city, walked to a grocery store on our way back and cooked dinner.

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.
