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.

The lush tranquility of Mathinna Falls – a four-tiered cascade in Tassie’s north-east captured here by @aussie_nomad_family. To reach the falls, head north from the historic gold mining town of Mathinna towards the Evercreech Forest Reserve. It’s then a gentle 30-minute return walk from the carpark to the base of the falls. Judging from this snap, it’s a walk that’s well worth it – thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, team! #mathinnafalls #eastcoasttasmania #waterfall http://ift.tt/1QHXLgm

Located literally minutes from Launceston’s CBD in @northertasmania, the Cataract Gorge Reserve features walking tacks, the world’s longest single span chairlift, a restaurant, a café, a suspension bridge, and panoramic lookouts with spectacular views.
