Things to see and do with a rental car in Launceston


Launceston is Tasmania’s northern city, and is naturally a gateway to the island’s coastal gems and incredible attractions. Within the city itself you’ll find a number of world-class spots such as the stunning Cataract Gorge and Tasmania Zoo. Home to both exotic and native animals – including the iconic Tasmanian Devil – Tasmania Zoo offers an unmissable hands-on wildlife experience that the kids will love!

For anyone looking to soak up some culture, there is also the historic Franklin House and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery to check out. Meanwhile, if you’re keen to test your skills on the green, you can head to Bunborgle Golf Course.Outside of the city, Tasmania offers a smorgasbord of natural attractions to visit, such as the endless beauty of the east coast and towns such as St Helens and Bicheno, as well as the north-east coast with its vineyards and wilderness. Pack a picnic and take a stroll through the bushland – you won’t regret it.

  • When you return your rental, it’s a good idea to fill up at the petrol station just 1.5 kilometres from the airport
