Tour the city

Take a historic self-guided walking tour of the city's heart.

If you'd like to immerse yourself in Launceston's historic architecture, take a self guided tour by downloading the Cya on the Road App and search for Launceston: A Walk along Historic Cameron Street or Launceston City Walk.

The Launceston History Walk is a self-guided tour of some of the finest and most interesting historic architecture in the city.

As Australia's third oldest European settlement, established in 1806 (The first being Sydney in 1788, the second Hobart in 1803), Launceston's city centre is home to many beautifully preserved and historically significant buildings. Cameron Street in particular hosts many fine examples of historic architecture, from the Crown Mill to the Launceston Post Office and clock tower.
