This beautiful diverse city is nestled at the apex of a spectacular and productive valley, where North and South Esk rivers unite to form the Tamar. Surrounded by prime agricultural land and not far from spectacular mountains and picturesque beaches, it is not easy to find a place on Earth which compares.
Historically and culturally rich, Launceston has developed into a thriving cosmopolitan kaleidoscope of opportunity – a place from which many prominent Australians have innovatively and compassionately served our nation and world.
Launceston Alive has crystalised some of the DNA which makes our city and region so special – cohesive cooperation – relevant engagement – commemoration & celebration – the central place of Easter in all aspects of modern life – and the transformation which comes when truth and hope are held high. Welcome to our website and to the unique aliveness that is growing among us.
