To the north of Tasmania, lush farmland, picturesque vineyards, and charming eighteenth century scenes provide a quaint backdrop to a whole host of exciting adventures. The expanse of countryside that characterises the area is perfect for mountain bikers and walkers, where you can zip along the crisscross of off-road trails or meander down back roads taking in cute cottages and village life.
For culture-vultures, the north of Tasmania is a haven for tasty treats and tipple. Seasonal produce is in abundance here, boasting delicious morsels like truffles, seafood, and cool-climate wines.
Launceston is the king of the north and Tasmania’s second city. Elegant architecture rubs shoulders with sprawling expanses of parkland, while the flanking hills proffer a green backdrop. The foodie scene is strong here, with plenty of local restaurants and cafes to scope out, and the city is a hotbed of museums, creativity, and youthful vigour thanks to its influx of students and design-led landscape.
