Custom House, Launceston. Tasmania. Australia.

Launceston was founded in 1806. The Custom House down by the North Esk River was built in 1885 and was used at one time for the role in the mining boom.

  1. It surely is well preserved and looked after. A lovely old building with lots of character.

    1. The Custom House was owned by the Government and it was used way back for mostly paper work of imports and exports.
      The Town Hall must look like a palace as well, will post of photo of that in the future.
