About Launceston

In a stunning riverside city located in northern Tasmania you’ll find the quiet and ambient town of Launceston. One of Australia’s (yes, Tassie is part of Australia) oldest cities and Tasmania’s second major city, Launceston is rich in food, wine, nature and culture. With stunning landscapes right at your fingertips, you’re almost guaranteed to get that Insta-worthy holiday shot that we all enjoy showing off on our social media.

As with most hostels nowadays you’ll find yourself having the option of staying in a social dorm room or for those who prefer a tad more privacy you’ll find private room options. No matter what your preference and requirements we’re sure you will find a Launceston hostel that will suit your needs. You’ll find our Launceston hostels true to traditional hostel forms with great common rooms where you’ll make friends for life.

You’ll find hostels in Launceston located centrally, which allows for great exploring of the town and its vibe. You’ll be in the best location to sample the city’s finest Aussie pubs, tastiest restaurants and to visit its best galleries and museums. Alternatively, if you prefer to stay away from the city choose a Launceston hostel located amid the natural settings a little further out. The parklands of Cataract Gorge are a haven for nature lovers – just 15 minutes’ walk from the city centre will take you to this verdant valley full of roaming peacocks and crystal-clear water.

While in town you need to pay a visit to the magnificent Cataract Gorge where you’ll feel like you’ve escaped into another world a million miles away from the town with its stunning panoramic scenery. If you’re around during the MONA festival, you’ll also need to add that to your list of things to do. There is also a volunteer-run tram museum where you can take a ride on one of the restored trams and hear about the past tales about what happened to all the old carriages. Last but definitely not least, why not spend a day touring around tasting all the lovely wine the beautiful country has to offer.

Owing to Launceston’s simplistic and laid-back vibe, the city is efficient and easy to navigate around. A perfect way to explore the town and outer suburbs is to round up your newly made hostel friends and hire a car. Tasmania is a perfect destination for a self-guided mini road trip. Alternatively, you can hop on a bus to explore the city. Despite Launceston being a tad hilly, a bike is still a great way to explore and get to know the town.
