Things to see and do with a rental car in Launceston

Tasmania may be a small state, but it’s certainly not lacking in things to do. Launceston city itself has a range of activities to suit all tastes, with stunning sights such as Cataract Gorge. This slice of wilderness has hiking trails, gardens, and the world's longest single span chairlift – and it’s only minutes from the city. There’s also the historic Franklin House and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery to check out, not to mention the Tasmania Zoo. This wildlife sanctuary has both native and exotic animals – from lions to wallabies to Tasmanian devils. You can even get up close and personal with some of them in an animal encounter. The kids will love it! 

Launceston is a quick drive outside the city and will be rewarded with the gorgeous beaches of the east coast, the wilderness of the north east coast and hidden gems along the way such as the Barnbougle Golf Course. Discover it all in your Thrifty rental.
