Launceston Up Close is a provider of guide services around the inner streets of The City of Launcerston, Tasmania, Australia.  Our tours are walking tours.  We recommend guests wear comfortable shoes and weather approriate clothing.

In summer, sunburn is a real possibility as UV damage is much more likely in Tasmania than any other state due to our lower latitudes.  Guests are encouraged to wear UV resistant clothing, and carry a suitably rated UV cream.

At no time have we, nor will we provide transport at any stage of the tour.  In the event a guest becomes incapacitated, we will provide first aid and if necessary call a taxi, or an ambulance, the payment to which is the responsibility of the guest.

Launceston Up Close holds Public Liability cover but this does not absolve you from responsibility for your own actions that may jeopardise your wellbeing.

Tasmanian law (Civil Liability Act [Tas] 2002), does not require Launcerston Up Close to advise participants of obvious risks of injury and by your participation in the tour, you acknowledge and accept that your do not attract a higher standard of care than is provided for you by Tasmanian law.
