Welcome to Launceston – a beautiful and musical theatre obsessed city in Northern Tasmania.


Launceston is just one hour from Melbourne and 1.5 hours from Sydney with daily direct flights into Launceston Airport.


Situated on the glorious Tamar River, Launceston is best known for its beautiful natural landscapes, incredible food and wine and its rich history.


The city has a vibrant artistic scene with incredible designers, artists and makers, a strong local theatre industry and – of course – lots of musical theatre performances!


The city is only a two-hour drive from the iconic Cradle Mountain. The delightful Tamar Valley Wine Route is just up the road from the city. And if sport is your thing why not attend the Hawthorn vs Port Adelaide match which is on during the Australian Musical Theatre Festival.
