Gay Launceston

Launceston, Tasmania
Australia

Launceston, Tasmania, Australia.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Launceston is Tasmania's “northern capital” and a gem for gay and lesbian travelers who enjoy the blend of fine Victorian and contemporary architecture, fine wine and fine dining and natural scenic beauty. The unique natural attraction of Cataract Gorge is only a 15-minute walk from the city centre, and not far from the J. Boag and Son brewery, one the region’s business attractions. It’s also a great base for exploring the surrounding region.

Launceston has a great selection of gay friendly hotels, inns and guesthouses for the gay and lesbian travel to enjoy. Prices and amenities range from budget to luxurious so there is plenty of choice for even the most discerning gay and lesbian traveler.

The tidal River Tamar flows north from Launceston to George Town and the Bass Strait, past forested hills and pastures, lavender plantations, vineyards, strawberry farms and orchards. Along the way, gay and lesbian travelers can sample the regional cuisine, taste excellent wine from superb boutique wineries and stop by roadside stalls to buy local farm produce.

For gay and lesbian travelers who love history and art, The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston is Australia’s largest regional gallery.
The Royal Park site, built in 1891, is one of Australia’s oldest museum buildings. The Inveresk gallery, opened in 2001, was once the Launceston Railway Workshops. The original structure has been incorporated into a striking contemporary architectural design that features world-class galleries and exhibition spaces.

To the north east of Launceston is Scottsdale with its Forestry EcoCentre, en route to the popular port and seaside town of Bridport, famous for fishing; the purple haze of lavender fields at Nabowla; and the links golf course, Barnbougle Dunes. Beneath the Great Western Tiers, to Launceston's west, is the pretty town of Deloraine, that every year hosts Australia's biggest working craft fair, while to the south down the Midlands Highway, are authentic examples of Tasmania's “living history”. In Evandale, Longford, Campbell Town and Ross, gay and lesbian travelers can explore 19th century grand country manors, workers’ cottages and peaceful town centres that are home to thriving country communities today.

So, whether you are looking for relaxation, nature, art, history and culture, or the fine wines and cuisine of the region, Launceston, Tasmania offers it all for the gay and lesbian traveler.
