Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The gorge is proximal to Launceston city so very easy to get to if you are staying here
    It is free which is pretty rare in this day and age. There is a base which has a place to purchase food, stop for a picnic or take a swim
    From the base , known as first basin There is a series of walking trails to choose from
    There is also an option to walk across a suspension bridge across the gorge or pay for a chairlift.

    Did the brewery tour on a Friday which unfortunately is a non-production day, so we weren’t able to see all the bottling and packaging machinery in operation.
    Our tour guide Alyssa was excellent though; very knowledgeable and entertaining in her commentary. The three different beers we got to sample at the end were a nice final touch to a well-organized tour. I’d have given 5 stars if the production line was in full swing.

    Just a relaxing place to visit. Nice to walk around whilst on a lunchbreak and take time out from a busy schedule. Thanks to Launceston City Council and workers.

    If you're with children, this is a GREAT place. There was craft (approximately between 10:30 am and 12 pm) and interactive exhibitions, which children really enjoyed. There were also various interesting bits and pieces without overwhelming you with the sheer number of items. Bonus: the exit is not through the shop!

    We did a self drive winery tour of the Tamar valley and it was so great. Lots of little quirky wineries run by the couples that own them. Loved it!

    Very interesting musuem. Didn't realise it existed until I saw a mention of it on a Facebook post. Well worth a visit, particularly if you're into motor racing and motorbikes.

    Great place to visit although does get busy at times. Chairlift was fun but didn’t get enough time to explore the rest of the location walk wise. Car parking was ok as we had downloaded the Easy Park app for our trip to Tassie, highly recommended as we used this allot with our hire car and visiting sites.

    On an afternoon out we took a late visit to enjoy a drink or two and something light to eat. We sat outdoors in the lovely garden settings and enjoyed a couple of glasses of their fine wine and a tasty platter of local produce. The staff were friendly and the service was spot on.

    Amazing to step back in time and see this wonderful historic home that was saved by the National Trust in Tasmania. Really beautifully maintained with a passionate group of dedicated volunteers who can assist with any questions you might have. The gardens are so lovely to walk around and the amount of fruit trees shows us all that back in the day you didn’t need a Coles or Wollies, you grew your own. My only downside was unlike in Victoria with historical homes none of the furniture is original to the house but that’s just a personal feeling. The house is still alive today.

    We drove past here each day during our stay in Rosevears and made a point of checking it out. Easy parking. The walk was much longer than we expected which we were happy with. Very peaceful. A good variety of birds to be seen. Beautiful views of the surrounding hills. Toilets were located at the far end of the walk and I was pleasantly surprised to see a picnic and BBQ area there also. Well worth stopping for 💕

    A fairly easy walk alongside a running creek, through a lovely rainforest area, to reach two beautiful waterfalls. The walk is mostly accessible by prams or wheelchairs until you get closer and need to climb some stairs and uneven stone steps to reach the waterfalls. Plenty of rocks to clamber over when you get to the falls. Just out of Lilydale and a short drive from Launceston - worth the effort.

    This market, which is held weekly on Saturday mornings, has its own dedicated paved area on Cimitiere Street.

    Lots of stalls, well spaced, with seating areas.

    Stalls sold mostly fresh produce (fruit and vegetables, meats, seafood, artisan bread, pastries and dairy). There were though some spirit providers as well as artisan preserves, pickles, cured meats and salami, honey etc plus some ready to eat take away offerings.

    Would visit every week to stock up the fridge and the pantry if we lived in Launceston.
