The Chief and I have just spent the long weekend in Launceston Tasmania.
What a beautiful city it is. With only a 15min drive from the airport, you will arrive into the heart of Launceston. It has what seems like, an old pub on every corner, beautiful churches, terrace house's turned into restaurants and streets full of great fashion and homeware store's.
We stayed at the Mercure Hotel which is within walking distance to just about everything. Friday night was spent with friends at Theodori Greek Tavern at 61 Brisbane St. The best Greek food we think we have ever had. For something a little more up market, try Terry Fidlers Brisbane St Cafe, just up the road. Just devine!
The weekend was all about the football and Aurora Stadium is only a 10min stroll from the hotel. It was only 10 degrees, so we were all rugged up with a coat, scarf, gloves and warm socks. It is freezing this time of year, so take as many warm clothes as possible.
We are looking forward to heading over again in 5 weeks for the delicious food, good company and most of all, another great win!
Another great way of seeing Tasmania is to hire a campervan and drive around this beautiful state at your own leisure. This way you will see alot more and save money by not staying in expensive hotels. Go to uzoom.com.au or phone 13000 89 666 and get down to Tassie!
