When is the best time to visit Launceston?


Summer is when Launceston puts its best foot forward. Buy your flights to Launceston and enjoy the warm weather, summer festivals and outdoor activities. As it’s peak tourism season, everything is open, and you'll find an endless list of things to do in the city such as heritage walks, the Tamar Island wetlands, gourmet walking tours and events at the nearby wineries.


Plan your return flights to Launceston between March and May to enjoy the city and the surrounding areas in autumn. Temperatures cool down to 17°C, making it comfortable weather for outdoor activities like hiking. If you want to add a few day trips into your itinerary, you can pick up your rental from Launceston Airport (LST) and drive out to Tamar Valley and the Bay of Fires.


Winter is an off-season for Launceston, and it’s an excellent time for budget travellers searching for cheap flights to Launceston or deals on accommodation. You can also plan your trip around the 12-night festival, Dark Mofo. It's the city's annual art and music festival and the companion to the summer Mona Foma festival.


From September to November, temperatures in Launceston start to slowly warm-up. One thing to keep in mind is that spring is when Tasmania receives most of its rain. Plan an itinerary which will see you exploring indoor attractions like the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in case the rain postpones any outdoor activities.

What is the best way to get around Launceston?

Public transport

You can see most of Launceston's top attractions by using the free tourist bus. The Tiger bus stops near landmarks such as the City Park and the Queen Victoria Museum. If you want to take in the sights at a slower pace, you can also hire a bicycle. Rental prices start at about $20 AUD per day. If you want to use the city's public bus system to travel to other parts of the city, consider buying a GreenCard. It gives you a discount on fares, and travellers with plane tickets to Launceston can purchase it from tourist information offices.

Car rental

Renting a car is a great option for travellers who want to explore Launceston and visit the surrounding areas, like the Bay of Fires and Tamar Valley. You can hire a vehicle at the same time you buy your flights to Launceston, and then pick it up at Launceston Airport (LST).

What should I pack for Launceston?

Buying return flights to Launceston for summer travel? You'll still need to pack warm layers as the weather in Tasmania can be temperamental. Pack a jacket that can be kept in the car in case the temperature drops, but also don’t forget to bring along your swimsuit! In the winter and autumn months, you should pack for cold and wet weather. Wear your warmest coat with you on your flights to Launceston to save luggage space, and also consider bringing waterproof shoes and layers if you’re hoping to experience any of the walks, hikes or outdoors around the city.
