July 1, 2020 Hotel News No Comments Email Email
As we start to see more movement across our states here in Australia, many of us are eagerly waiting for restrictions put in place on interstate travel to ease, so that we can get out and explore our very own backyard.

Tasmania has always been a hot destination for local travellers, with this fascinating state offering so much to do and see. Launceston however, is undoubtedly a stand out and typically a popular choice for visitors, due to it being a hub for fantastic food and wine, and filled with plenty of history and old world charm to explore.
Although borders are not open to visitors just yet, Launceston is starting to make positive steps forward, with StayWell Holdings excited to be re-opening their Leisure Inn Penny Royal site in the city from tomorrow (1 July, 2020) after being closed due to Covid-19 restrictions. For those looking to start planning their next trip, below is guide for rediscovering the stunning city of Launceston and its surroundings:
  • The best places to eat & drink: as a stand out location for food and drink in Australia, this state offers an array of outstanding local food and wine choices. Take in the beautiful surrounding wineries in Launceston that line the Tamar Valley, and get a taste of Tasmania’s signature wine offering including sparkling, pinot noir and sauvignon blanc. If food is more your flavour, why not pay a visit the local Salmon farm, 41 Degrees South, and enjoy light (salmon inspired) lunch at the small cafe on site.

  • The perfect place to rest your head: Leisure Inn Penny Royal is situated in an ideal location, being only 10 minutes from Launceston CBD, and adjacent to the beautiful Tamar River. Offering a variety of room options that are perfect for those wanting to plan a weekend away or longer stay, Leisure Inn Penny Royal offers self-contained apartments that embody all the comforts of home. Spend the day exploring the surrounding local businesses and attractions, including the hotel’s onsite adventure park (perfect for kids), before retreating to your room to unwind, indulge in your Tamar Valley wine purchases, and enjoy your room’s full range of amenitiesLeisure Inn Penny Royal forms part of StayWell Holdings, which is one of the largest hotel management groups in Asia Pacific. StayWell Holdings has also introduced a post Covid-19 Brand Standards for Hygiene & Sanitation program, to protect guests and employees and Leisure Inn Penny Royal will implement this into their operations – full details of the StayWell Covid-19 response here.
  • Get out outdoors and explore: after being cooped up inside during isolation, why not get outside and explore all that’s on offer both in and around Launceston. The Cataract Gorge is one of the area’s top attractions and within walking distance from the Leisure Inn Penny Royal, so why not take advantage of exploring this natural playground, and enjoy the walking trails, and attractions that surround it. How about getting lost in a sea of purple at the Bridestow Lavender Estate, and take in one of the region’s most breathtaking sights? Or, if you’re up for a drive, you can travel just 2-hours from Launceston to one of the states best kept secrets, the Little Blue Lake, which is located in the northeast region of Tasmania and is truly breathtaking.
  • Enjoy local attractions: spend the day enjoying the local Tasmania Zoo, or visit the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery. Get back outside and the fresh air at the many local parks within the area, and in particular the Launceston City Park, where you can roam the beautiful, historic grounds.
