    An example of housing in Launceston

    Cliff housing

    This is not a cultural tip exactly, but I just wanted to show you a pic of one of a whole strip of houses I found, built high backed flush against rocky cliffs in Launceston (not far from the tourist attraction of Pennyroyal Village).

    I'd never seen two storied Victorian and Edwardian houses anywhere else before, and they were rather attractive in the sun with all their brightly painted faces.
