Enjoy New Year’s Eve 2012/2013 in Launceston

Launceston is Tasmania’s second largest city after Hobart. The city is beautifully situated just at the junction of the North Esk and South Esk rivers, where they join to become the Tamar River, the longest river in Tasmania. The first settlers came in 1806 from Europe, which makes Launceston one of Australia’s oldest cities. The history is reflected in lots of the 19th and early 20th century buildings in the central business district. All together Launceston has a very pretty town center with lots of shops, restaurant and bars, so you won’t have any problem finding the right entertainment for your New Year’s Eve 2012/2013.

Launceston has the best of both worlds. There are old buildings, parks, gardens and riverside walks mixed with the vibrant flair and culture of a big city. A great attraction is the world’s longest single span chairlift that stretches across the Cataract Gorge for a mind-staggering 1.1010 ft (308 meters). Or why not take a day trip out to Tasmania Zoo, situated just outside Launceston. A visit to the cities casino, one of the first casinos to be built in Australia, could round your New Year’s Eve off. So get cracking and plan your best New Year’s Eve 2012/2013 in Launceston!
