Road trips out of Launceston are easy, with the city being a strategic base for exploring the beautiful Tasmanian landscape. With a reliable rental car, you have unlimited access to world-class wineries, heritage estates, and wilderness marvels like Cradle Mountain.

Driving on the Left

Just like in the UK, Australians drive on the left side of the road. This familiarity gives you more confidence in navigating Launceston city streets and the winding scenic routes.

Speed Limits and Traffic Rules

Be mindful of speed limits which vary depending on the type of road and location. In residential areas, the speed limit is usually 50km/h, while it's up to 100km/h on highways. Always adhere to traffic signs and rules. Remember, wearing seatbelts is mandatory for all passengers and the blood alcohol limit is 0.05.

Must-Visit Places

Launceston offers attractions to suit every traveller, from nature lovers to history buffs.

Exploring City Centre

With your rental car, dive into the heart of Launceston. Visit historical sites such as the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, and the Royal Park Art Gallery. Enjoy a walk at City Park or take a relaxing cruise along the Tamar River.

Discover Wines at the Tamar Valley

Drive to the famous Tamar Valley wine region. Explore vineyards and taste some of Australia's finest cool-climate wines. Remember not to drink and drive.

The Wilderness of the Cradle Mountain

Take a day trip to the iconic Cradle Mountain, boasting stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife. Before you return, ensure you refuel your rental car as fuel stations are limited in rural areas.

Finding a Parking Spot

On-street parking in Launceston operates on a pay-and-display basis. City car parks are also available. Read and heed parking signs to avoid any fines.

Adapting to the Climate

Launceston's weather is more temperate than the UK's, particularly during the summer (Dec - Feb). Remember to pack light clothing as well as sun protection.

Practical Information

'Bonzer'! That's the expression you'll hear when things are excellent in Australia. Here are some essential facts:

Currency

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is used here. Most places accept contactless payment too, just like in the UK.

Seasonal Events

Launceston hosts vibrant cultural events, like Festivale in Feb - March and the Boogie Woogie Beach Bash around Dec - Jan. Check out these dates when planning your trip.

Renting a car enhances your Launceston experience. So take control, brave the open roads, and make unforgettable memories of Tasmania!
