Launceston and North

By Discover Tasmania | Tasmania's north is a feast of historic streetscapes and heritage estates, rich farmland, premier cool-climate wines, fresh produce and a haven for designers and craft makers eager to talk about their work.

Autumn; that wonderful time of year when 'golden hour' lasts for weeks 🍂🍁💛 . . . . . #discovertasmania#tasmania#seeaustralia#hollybank#autumn#autumn2017#australia#lovethywalrus

Keen for some more exploring of this place I call home ✨ #discovertasmania #home #adventures

Which house would you pick? 🏡 This was the view from my room's balcony when I stayed at the very luxurious @mantrahotels in Launceston. Some might think this is an average view compared to some but I couldn't stop looking! With the sun rising, lighting up the old Launceston homes which lined the parallel roads and the huge trees filling the gaps...it was just perfect! My room happened to be at the perfect level to see a little bit of everything that morning. I wasn't here for long though, the huge buffet was calling my name repeatedly ☺️ Oh shush, don't tell me you can resist a hotel buffet breakfast! 🍳 #launceston #discovertasmania

Yeah... This'll do just fine Tassie. Juuuuust fine. Newly-opened, eco-friendly @bluederbypodsride in the Tassie hinterland, capitalising on this natural mountain biking Mecca 🌾🍂🍃☘️ #BlueDerby #MountainBiking #DiscoverTasmania

@tasmazia and the village of lower crackpot. Only 1.20hours away from Launceston. The world LARGEST maze complex! ❤ Worth going to challenge your sense of direction and of course, a very family friendly 'park'. I know I'm late in asking but what did you guys do for the long Easter Holidays? Comment down below! Would love to know what all of you were doing 😊 I spent my holidays with my family traveling around Tasmania! #margaretintasmania . . . #tasmazia #roadtrip #tasmania #hobartandbeyond #villageoflowercrackpot #australia #discoveraustralia #discovertasmania #exploretasmania #photography #familytrip #fun #maze #miniatureworld #180417 #easterholiday #wongfamilytasmaniatrip

Brilliant lunch @josefchromywines #tassiestyle

Taking in the jaw dropping view at Alum Cliffs in Mole Creek🍃. . Breathing in the fresh crisp air of Tassie and hearing birds chirp in the trees above is how I spent my Easter. I did hikes all over Tasmania with friends. This view was a short 20min walk from the carpark. Definitely worth a trip if you're in the area! How was your Easter? #happyeaster🐰 #messyhairdontcare

Following the path into another world with @benoslater. Floor to ceiling carpets of green surround the walk into Liffey Falls. Located in the forests of the Great Western Tiers mountain range, just 40 minutes' drive southwest of Launceston, Liffey Falls are considered by many as Tassie's most picturesque waterfall. The Liffey Falls State Reserve was added to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area in 1989 as a result of its rich indigenous heritage and insights into the forces which shaped the landscape over the past 250 million years. Thanks for tagging us with #discovertasmania, Ben.

Round 2 of the Enduro World Series was lit! Around 3000 spectators came out in the rain to watch the worlds best. I ended up 91st in elite men and had a ripper time! Thanks to @gfloats for getting me prepared and recovered for the race and @avantipluslaunceston for all the help 📸 @olieeeee #EnduroWorldSeries #bluederby #EWS2017 #shimanoendurotas #ewstasmania #emsenduro #discovertasmania #scottbikes #scott2luvit #bikeonscott #enduromtb #enduro

Enduro World Series, Tasmania: Race Day – Photo Epic

It was another wet wild day of racing as the cold and heavy rain hammered riders all day long while they took to the hills of Derby, Tasmania for the …

This Tasmania is not bad, not bad at all! Such a sick place to ride bikes! Super stoked on the stages we get to race here for @world_enduro! Technical, fast, rowdy and lot's of airtime! So much fun to ride, I'm happy! 😊🙌 #EwsTasmania #bluederby #emsenduro #DiscoverTasmania #tassie #shimanoendurotas #rockslabsfordays 📷 @svenmartinphoto

"Mt Paris Dam. Man made in the 1930s, busted in the 1980s and now being taken back by nature." A great caption and image from @benoslater of the imposing structure of the decommissioned Mt Paris Dam nestled in the cool-temperate wilderness of @northerntasmania. Located mid-way between Branxholm and Weldborough, the dam was constructed in 1936 to service the nearby mining by the Mt Paris Tin Mines Pty Ltd. In 1985, after the dam was decommissioned nearly twenty years earlier, holes were blasted in the dam wall to reinstate the flow of the Cascade River. It's a significant and intriguing feature of the north-east's mining heritage - and a fascinating place to visit. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Ben.

We love this shot of one of @bluederbypodsride's architect-designed sleeping pods sitting silently in the heart of the @bluederby Mountain Bike trails in @northerntasmania. Located on the outskirts of Derby - just over an hour's drive north-east of Launceston - the Blue Derby Trails are over 80 kilometres of purpose-built single track that weaves amongst enormous granite slabs and stunning wilderness. This weekend, the global MTB spotlight will shine on Derby for the second round of the 2017 Enduro World Series: the Shimano Enduro Tasmania - the first time the Enduro World Series has come to @Australia. With over 500 competitors and 3 days of adrenaline-fuelled competition, it's going to be big! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, guys.

Thursday's for the media 🦑at a @world_enduro is our favorite day of the week. We recce the trails for the coming days shooting and racing. Yesterday was about as good as it gets. Bush shuttles in the Iconic Aussie Toyota Troopie with @vertigomtb and seven amazing @worldtrail crafted stages and a surprise lunch stop at the must visit @bluederbypodsride This photo is a bit of an anomaly as the trails are loamy and in some amazing native forest. Flowy natural bumps and enhanced jumps everywhere. Can't wait to see the racers on it. @mdelormephoto gets last turns on stage six. #DiscoverTasmania | @world_enduro | @bluederby | @fstopgear | #lightbro

Our beautiful morning view this week...

Autumn mornings 💭 #vcsocam #instagood #launceston #discovertasmania #vsco

Feeling blessed that my bike has taken me to so many amazing places💛! First time down under in Tasmania, love it and got treated on this beautiful sunset. Fun fact: Tasmania is named after the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman who discover the island in 1642 as first European. Must have taking him forever to get here by boat 🚣 ⛵️!! #respect #dutchroots #sunset #tasmania #ridenowsleeplater #enduromtb #instagood #girlswhoride

Cataract Gorge Reserve in Launceston is a home to this beautiful birds. Павлины свободно разгуливают про парку Cataract Gorge в Лонсестоне, Тасмания. (А мой Андроид почему-то не знает слов павлины и Тасмания, подчеркивает красным 🤔. Я же правильно все написала?..)

Such a stunning place for some morning shots. @pennyroyaladventures in @tasmania

Meanwhile, in @tasmania, you might bump into a wildlife carer with a #wombat over their shoulder - no biggie! This cute critter was spotted getting the royal treatment at @trowunna_wildlife_park near #Launceston. Trowunna Wildlife Park is an oasis for native wildlife; all the animals you'll see here are either being rehabilitated, are part of a breeding program or are much-loved permanent residents that are unable to be released into the wild.
