Launceston is located on the Tamar River where the North and South Esk Rivers converge.

It is Tasmania's second largest population centre, and is an attractive city due to its many parks and gardens, which incorporate European trees such as oaks and elms.

Cataract Gorge Reserve is arguably the best recreational area in the northern city of Launceston, located only 1.6 km (1 mi) from the city centre.

The chairlift crossing the Gorge is the longest single span one in the world at 308m (924 ft) - a winter view from chairlift is pictured below.
