Our Tours

In conjunction with our historical consultants, we have undertaken extensive research ensuring historical accuracy and in-depth knowledge. We have developed a series of unique tours of Launceston that take in the city’s recent history.

Interpretation and stories from our guides, along with some unique visual aids developed for Go Walk Tas, our tours will reveal some amazing little facts about our region that even the locals may not be aware of!

In 2019 and 2020, Go Walk Tas is offering two regular departing tours along with other limited ‘special event’ tours. Each tour has a maximum of 10 guests.

We are also able to curate a customised itinerary upon request.

The City and Seaport Tour

Our Seaport and City tour takes in the fascinating history of Australia’s third oldest city – the city of Launceston. Launceston is one Australia’s best-preserved cities with 20th century architecture and is fast becoming known as a gem for travellers due to its ease of access, preserved buildings and historical landmarks representing colonial culture.

Over three and a half hours you will explore (on foot) some of the more historical parts of the city. The tour includes use of some unique visual interpretation devices! Learn of the significance this Tasmanian city has played in shaping Australia.

The tour finishes with a sumptuous lunch at Launceston’s premier dining venue, Stillwater Restaurant. Here you will be able to reflect on your walk with your fellow guests.
