We’ve teamed with historical consultants to unravel the best kept tales of Launceston. Extensive research combines with a good dose of passion – we’re locally owned and want to share the lesser known of our historic city. If you didn’t know about the swim club known as the ‘tadpoles’ that leapt off the Kings Bridge for town entertainment back in 1915, we’ll tell you all about. We’ll then walk you through the modern days and how the city has evolved.
Stories from our guides won’t just be delivered in words. We have some special interpretation that’ll transport you to an era long gone. Choose between our two regular tours below or enquire about our limited ‘special events’ tours. Remember, we keep numbers to an intimate 10 but we’ll also leave with one and can customise a special itinerary upon request.
What You'll Get

Stop At: Launceston, Launceston, Tasmania
Been to Launceston? Ever spent most of your time looking up? This fascinating city – Australia’s third oldest – holds most of its story well above street level. It’s one of the country’s best-preserved cities with 20th century architecture, remnants of colonial culture and whispers of a seafaring past.
We’ll take you from our Stillwater Restaurant home base along the seaport before heading into the city’s heart. Across 3 hours, you’ll discover how this Tassie city has played a pivotal role in shaping Australia. Through curated visual aids and your trusty guide, experience the town in a way innovative to us.
What better way to top off your city and seaport discovery than with a delish dining experience at Stillwater Restaurant? The premier venue sits waterside, an ideal locale to chat over the city’s newfound historic tales in a venue pushing the boundaries of Australia’s culinary future.
