Princes Square

Princes Square's fountain is somewhat of a Launceston landmark. The park has a colourful history - originally a brickfield and site of past military drills, rowdy political meetings and hangings, the park now plays host to city workers after some fresh air and sunshine, and Junction Arts Festival also sets up shop in the park grounds each year.

Bordered with timber bench seats and mature trees providing ample shade, the park is popular in the summer months. With local cafes like Bread and Butter, Mad Apple and Tinka Coffee Brewers just a hop skip and jump away, we recommend getting a takeaway to enjoy while you sit by the fountain and watch the world go by.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Tons of fantastic eateries nearby
  • Plentiful dappled shade to enjoy on sunny says
  • Iconic fountain
  • Site for the annual Junction Arts festival
