Relaxed living in Launceston, the northern capital of Tasmania home swap

Our house is a distinctive looking home built in 1940 with large rooms and plenty of comfort. Formerly the home of a Tasmanian Premier.

Launceston is a smart provincial city with the conveniences expected of a larger city. Cataract Gorge is a must and everyone enjoys Launceston's restaurants, cafes and bars.

We are in Northern Tasmania, and our house would make an excellent base to explore more widely to places like Cradle Mountain, Liffey Falls, the northern beaches, Freycinet National Park, Bay of Fires, Ben Lomond Ski Field (in winter).

Many enjoy walking in the country and mountains.

Mazda 2 Car available to the right people.

Our house is easily accessible from the Australian mainland with direct flights from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to Launceston. We will pick our exchangees at the airport if possible.
