To really understand Northeast Tasmania, visit one of its museums and theaters. Walk through the exhibits and savor the atmosphere of the National Automobile Museum in Launceston and the Launceston Tramway Museum in Invermay. Often talked about galleries, include the Queen Victoria Art Gallery in Invermay and 1842 Gallery in Launceston.
See what is in fashion locally and purchase some original souvenirs in a few of the nearby malls and markets such as Quadrant Mall in Launceston.
Aurora Stadium, Launceston is the perfect place to spend an afternoon enjoying Australia rules football (AFL), and to see local legends, the Hawthorn Hawks, in all their glory. On game days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of brown and gold, as crowds come together to support their beloved team.
Finding somewhere suitable to base yourself around the Westbury area is a breeze. Take your pick from the Hotel Charles, Launceston, the Balmoral On York, Launceston, or the Leisure Inn Penny Royal Hotel & Apartments, Launceston.
