Health & Wellbeing

As a destination for rejuvenation and wellness, you’ll find Launceston offers a variety of choices to suit all comers.

Try Tai Chi under the green oak canopies of City Park, practise at one of the number of yoga studios around the City (try Bikram if you can stand the heat!) or unwind, relax, and restore your mental and physical well-being at one of Launceston’s day spas or wellness centres.

Launceston’s temperate climate encourages a sporty, outdoor-focused lifestyle. On any given morning you will find bunches of road cyclists heading down the Tamar Valley towards the Batman Bridge (a number of professional cyclists call the City home), rowers gliding on the river, joggers plying the tracks around the Cataract Gorge Reserve, or walkers exercising dogs on the riverside boardwalks by the Seaport Launceston. Swimmers head for Launceston Aquatic Centre or the First Basin public pool, while mountain-bikers bomb the trails at the Trevallyn and Kate Reed Nature Recreational Areas, or the recently developed Hollybank Mountain Bike Park.

Tasmania’s locally grown produce promises the very best in healthy eating – tempt your taste buds with lunch at a local favourite Garden of Vegan, try steak from the North-East, reared in some of the world’s cleanest air, or seafood freshly plucked from our crystal-clear coastal waters.

An unhurried pace, relaxed and friendly locals and gentle sense of community will only add to your experience, confirming our City as a perfect place to heal, refocus, and revitalise.
