First stop Launceston - Launnie for short

Launceston has been a cultural hub and gastronomic centre for more than two thousand generations. Our natural and built heritage, food, wine (and spirit), major events (AFL of course) continues to draw together a diverse community of makers, artisans, storytellers, Hawks fans and nature lovers from all over the world.
