Create an itinerary including City Park
City Park is a heritage park containing the city's botanic gardens, radio museum, gallery of wood design and furniture, and an enclosed colony of macaque monkeys. The park's monorail operates on most days and is a popular tourist attraction, taking visitors around the area's most notable landmarks. The most prominent buildings at this location are Albert Hall, which was built in 1891; a convention center; and the studios of City Park Radio. The studios are located inside a cottage that once served as the park caretakers' home, and still boast one of the oldest wisteria wines in Australia, planted in 1837.

  • Lovely park across the road from our accommodation. Beautiful gardens lush green lawns, stunning display of orchids in the conservatory. I just was amazed by the Macaque display so cute and entertaining such a fantastic idea and free to view them. Such a rare find.
  • Great place for a walk. Located centrally within Launceston. Has a play area for the kids. Others will enjoy the gardens full of flowers. Kids will also enjoy a ride on the kids train which takes around 10mins a quick tour around the park. The local wildlife consist of several ducks, various birds and monkeys. Worth a visit.
