Can you see yourself living here? 

The architecture in Launceston makes you feel like you’re walking through the 19th century, yet the spirit of the place and its people is all about quiet ambition, from the Australian Maritime College to some of Tasmania’s most unforgettable culinary experiences. 

Just outside Launceston, you can be a part of the wine and food scene in the lush Tamar Valley. Further up the river in George Town, join Northern Tasmanians who are building industrial products for the world with renewable energy. Tourism entrepreneurs in Northern Tasmania invite the world to ride “hero dirt” on their mountain bikes or to walk through spectacular fields of lavender with a blue ice cream cone. Imagine what you could build here.
