      What to do with an afternoon in Launceston?

      by volarevolare Online Now Feb 19, 2011 at 1:41 AM

      Hi all,

      Good day!

      I'm wondering what's there to do with 2 hours left of daylight in Launceston in the late afternoon?

      If I have 2 hours from 1600 -- 1800 (before it gets dark and it's time for dinner), what could I see/ do in Launceston?

      Thanks for your suggestions! :)

      Batman Fawkner Inn?

      by idy Online Now Nov 12, 2009 at 1:01 AM

      Hullo forum folks!

      I'm having a bit of trouble finding budget accomodation in Launceston for the January period that suitable for a family of 5 adults (including an elderly couple).

      But I found this place called Batman Fawkner Inn, does anyone know of it? They apparently just recently reopened and I can't find any reviews online. They are located at 39 Cameron Street.

      Anyone who knows the place, I'd be grateful for your opinion about the place.

      Thanks in advance.

      Day Tours to Bridestowe Lavender Farm

      by Tsubame Online Now Nov 21, 2005 at 9:47 AM

      Hi, am in a bit of a fix now. I could only find Tiger Wilderness Tour doing the Lavender Farm tour from the internet. BUT, they are already fully booked for the day! To prevent further disappointment, we have booked the Cradle Mt. day tour with them, so that leaves us with only 5th Dec, Monday to visit the farm.

      Can anybody advise what other day tour company also have the Lavender tour? We will be based in Launceston. And if we cannot get a tour, what is the best possible way to get there via public transport as we do not drive?

      Thanks very much.

      Accomodation in or around Launceston

      by Audrey118 Online Now May 25, 2005 at 1:07 AM

      This is well in advance planning, but becos there will be at least 10 pax, if not 12, and during late January, it is peak season.

      We will be flying in from Melbourne to Hobart, driving past Richmond to stay 2 nights in Bichenon (any accomodation tips there also welcome - we have considered Diamond Bay), and then off to Launceston for another 2 nights.

      we are looking for exclusive type of accomodation where cost is irrelevant. Some accomodation does not permit children - we have one child, 10 years old travelling with us. It may be a private villa, chef runned historical home, or scenic view apartments. It need not be smack in city centre, as we will have cars...10-15 mins outside of Launceston is OK with us.

      thanks in advance
