Walks and Wine in Launceston 

Well I didn’t mean to take a full week off of blogging but I started this post last Tuesday and between a baby demanding my attention and subpar internet service I didn’t get around to finishing it until Saturday. #momlife

When I left off last week two weeks ago, we were just leaving Cradle Mountain and heading towards Launceston. We pulled into a rainy Launceston mid afternoon and quickly checked into our Airbnb, which was a loft in a historical building downtown (pictured below). Then we drove around to get our bearings and see the city. We had spent a day there on our last trip but stayed in a different area.

Travis had booked a “charming” bed and breakfast that was less than charming to say the least (there’s that 85% again). Luckily, it was in a great location and we got to walk straight down a hill of historic homes into the city center. We walked into town and chatted up the bartender at the cider bar for suggestions on what to do with our time in Launceston.

The next morning we went to check out Cataract Gorge per the bartenders suggestion. We drove and parked but you can easily walk from the middle of town.
