Make Room for Road Trips

Cradle Mountain

  • Easy and challenging walks
  • 5,000-foot summit
  • Accessible by car
  • Accommodation available

The beauty of hiring a rental car means you can travel the city and surrounding areas to your heart’s content. Just two hours out of Launceston sits Cradle Mountain - one of Tasmania’s most famous natural landmarks. Journey to the mountain for a captivating experience and unparalleled views of the rugged landscapes. Cradle Mountain is open to the public no matter the time of year, with many locals and tourists opting to visit during snow season. On the mountain, you may spot a native animal or two, with Tasmanian devils and quolls often calling the surrounding forests and woodlands home. There are walking tracks ranging from easy strolls to challenging hikes and for those wanting the ultimate Cradle Mountain experience, the Cradle Summit will lead you to the extraordinary 5,000-foot peak. Planning on staying the night? Accommodation is available with cosy cabins within the National Park.

Tamar Valley

Turn your visit to Launceston into a road trip with a drive through the scenic Tamar Valley. Wineries, restaurants and attractions cover either side of the Tamar River, with Launceston being the central hub of the region. With over 30 wineries and vineyards along the River, many visitors take the Tamar Valley Wine Route, stopping for tastings along the way. If you choose to do so, make sure you assign a designated driver! If wine isn’t your thing, there’s much more to discover along the Valley including art, bush walks and beaches. We recommend stopping by Tasmania Zoo to see exotic and native animals or the Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre for an interactive look at the town’s mining history. With plenty of accommodation in Launceston, it’s easy to set off from the city, jump in the rental car and spend your days journeying across the Valley.

City of Launceston

Another essential when visiting Launceston is a visit to City Park - it’s part botanical garden, part zoo.
