Launceston History Walks (with Wallaby Walkabout Tours) are completely unique experiences that are all hosted by local historian, and Tasmanian Aboriginal historian, Geoff McLean. His knowledge, passion and story telling are a class above others and he takes his guests behind the scenes around Launceston and in the Cataract Gorge.
The primary history tour is the ‘Ye Olde Lonnie Explorer’ tour that begins in the wonderful and historic Prince's Square and takes in the heritage of that precinct with its incredible collection of historically significant, and visually appealing, churches and other buildings of interest. The tour then winds its way through laneways and back alleys of Launceston that takes guests on a different and behind the scenes experience of Launceston and its unique history. Hear the stories about the characters who are part of the fabric of Launceston's history. The tour finishes in Civic Square.
