Suburb Profile – West Launceston
West Launceston is a well established suburb only minutes away from the CBD, local amenities, the Launceston Hospital and Cataract Gorge.
Nestled on the side of the valley, many West Launceston properties deliver picturesque views spanning across the entire city.
The Cataract Gorge is one of Tasmania’s most prominent tourist attractions with swimming pools, cafes, restaurants, play grounds, Victorian gardens, chair lift and walking tracks along the cliff edges you can find yourself exploring the first and second basin any time of the year!
West Launceston Primary School is a 2 minute drive from the city, easily accessible for parents working in the CBD. Brickfields Reserve is popular with locals, engulfed in beautiful large oak trees the park includes swings, play equipment and seating. Italian restaurant ‘Cuccina’ is located opposite Brickfields Reserve and is popular with locals for their delicious breakfasts and coffees!
“The first suburb and home I can remember as a kid, if only I’d appreciated how lucky I was to live next to the Gorge. The “poor cousin” of East Launceston some would say (but ignored them!), whilst East might have the plethora of cafes and restaurants, West Launceston boasts one of the best natural public spaces anywhere in Australia! Walking trails, the basin, stunning gardens and swimming holes, not many people can boast to have such a beautiful place as their backyard!” Josh Hart
