The Gorge, Launceston.

The Gorge Gardens are only a 10 minute walk from the City of Launceston.  There are a few entrances and we usually choose the back entrance down those steps.
There is a restaurant near this area plus a chair lift which takes you over the Rhododendrons and near the swimming pool on the other side.  These photos are just a small area of the Gorge.  Peacocks are abundant as are birds and wallabies.

Royal Park, Launceston

Royal Park or City Park in Launceston, Tasmania is on the edge of our city.  It contains a monkey park which has not long been redone, must wander down to have a look soon.  The trees, most are very old and deciduous. 

Queen's Jubilee Drinking Fountain (1887/1897) above, below the conservatory and below that is the old caretakers cottage which is now used as a Radio Station called City Park Radio.
