An authentic farmers’ market and some excellent restaurants are helping to make Tasmania’s second city more than just a stop-off for Cradle Mountain
Launceston has long been a popular gateway to tourist hotspots like Cradle Mountain. But while in the past visitors have picked up their hire cars from the airport and taken off to the hills, there are increasing reasons to spend more time in Tasmania’s second city.
New hotels are going up in Launceston, plus Mona’s summer festival Mona Foma decamping there next year. An increasingly sophisticated foodie culture is developing using the incredible produce from the area – one that is being celebrated in a food festival this weekend.
