Travel Tips for Launceston
Cataract Gorge Launceston, Peacocks
At Cataract Gorge I really enjoyed seeing the peacocks (they are a fairly common bird to see in some parks in Australia but I always marvel at their brilliance anyway).
I thought this one was quite shy and offered him a little bread...but then when my attention was diverted from him for just a second, he decided to help himself and try to take lunch right out of my hands!
WINDERMERE - ST. MATTHIAS CHURCH
You can take a round trip detour into here. If you followed West Tamar Highway, and called in at Brady's Lookout, you would have seen a little church across the other side of the River. It is in my photo on the "Bradys Lookout". Heading on the East Tamar Highway, is Windermere, and the Church ( the one you saw on the other side.)
This is a COPY OF BEATRIX POTTERS OWN CHURCH in Far Sawrey in the Lakes District, England, built in the mid 1800"s with the riverside location.
Its located 20kms north of Launceston and you can do a round trip in and out. Delightful church, with and interesting old cemetery.
THE BEAUTIFUL LIFFEY WATERFALLS
In my opinion, these were the MOST BEAUTIFUL FALLS IN TASMANIA
Liffey Falls State Reserve is a World Heritage listed Park.
The Liffey River rises on the northern edge of the Great Western Tiers, flowing through dense cool-temperate rainforest before plunging over spectacular waterfalls.
There are four sets of falls along the 45-minute walk from the picnic ground down hill to the majestic Victoria Falls (commonly referred to as Liffey Falls) and return, all of which can be viewed from observation decks. The falls are very pretty, set in amongst the most beautiful, rainforest setting.
Don't misss the short walk that leads from near the toilet block to the "Big Tree", a huge Tree that you must see!
There are toilets with disabled access and sheltered picnic areas and gas barbecues at the upper end of the reserve.
How to Get to Liffey Falls
To reach the waterfalls, either turn off the Bass Highway (A1) at Carrick and take the C513 through the townships of Bracknell and Liffey to the Liffey Falls State Reserve, or turn left in Deloraine on the Lake Highway (A5) then take the Riversdale Road to the Liffey Falls Forest Reserve.
