An Idea is Born
We came over from the West, being drawn to the beauty and peace of Tasmania, and having worked in WA tourism we wanted to become a part of the Launceston tourist industry.
We were immediately drawn to the history and the frozen timescape of the city here in Launceston and thought we could not be the only ones who would appreciate knowing more about the early 1800's and Launceston's role in the development of colonial Australia.
So we thought about getting a little mini-bus and doing sight-seeing tours around the town centre. But the city centre is so compact, and everything is so close, we soon figured we would park the mini-bus in one place and walk around. But then we thought, why do we need a bus? Buses can break down! Let's host a selection of Historical Walks. Even walking to our starting points is not far from most of the hotels, and no vehicle means we can reduce the cost of the tour substantially. And we might get a little bit fit.
But what if it rains - this is Tasmania after all! The Umbrella Shop is on our itinerary, and we would make sure we keep a supply of single use ponchos in our pockets!
So why not join us on a Launceston Historic Walk, hear the stories and see the sites. It really is a gorgeous little city!
