Where are we going today?

If you want to hear some BUMPS in the night, and meet the other residents in Launceston that you CAN'T see, then why not take the family on a journey with Launceston Ghost Tours?

Launceston has a fascinatingly deep and dark convict past. It's a past that was filled with torturous deaths (ouch!) and deaths filled with heartache and pain (double ouch!). Imagine the streets filled with murderers, petty thieves, and ill-treated slaves....doesn't sound too great a place to live does it!

Well, luckily for you, it's not like that anymore (it's actually very beautiful!) but the stories are still there to be heard...and perhaps seen! BOO!

Launceston Ghost Tours offer three tours, so you can pick which is the best option for your family.

There are adult ghost tours, then tours perfect for those younger kids (which are great for birthday parties too!), as well as educational tours.

The kids tour is based on the history of Tasmania, and includes a wide range of stories from the original plot

Throughout the tours, you will experience...screaming....and loud noises *shiver!*....and darkness....oooooh! Some of their guests have actually experienced unexplained paranormal feelings too!

The guides are great, and they know how to adapt the gore-level depending on the age of the audience. However, if you do have nervous children it might be best to look into it further as there are noises that might make them jump a little too high!

The walking on the tours is paced very easily, and they ensure there are plenty of stops to make sure it's suitable for all levels of mobility. 

We hope you are ready to have a spooooky time - we know we are! BOO!

    The Royal Oak has been my local for the past 8 years and I absolutely love it. Great music every night of the week, excellent food at really good prices and fantastic staff. When I can walk in ans the staff have my drink poured for me, what more can I say? They get to know the majority of their patrons by name and are quite happy to have a chat with you! They have a laugh with you and make you feel right a home. In the middle of winter you can sit next to a roaring fire talking with strangers about the music that is playing in the background....Read More

    If you are from Melbourne you will feel right at home, more hipsters than you can poke an ironic lifestyle at.

    7pm on a Friday night, we decided to head to the Royal Oak for some local pub food.

    $40 for a pasta meal for the lady, parma meal for me and 1 drink - reasonable pricing.

    Food was brought out in normal time, but was dissapointing. The pasta sauce was supposed to be a bolognese but was dry and tasteless, the drink was served in a small kids glass (burboun and coke) even with this, we would have choose 3/5 as a rating, as she did finish both.

    The parma was very dissapointing. The vegies served with them were significantly over-boiled, but sadly,...Read More

    Absolutely the best. What a night. Must be the best kept secret in launceston. Blues night with lovely meals and good price. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The oak rocks!

In the summer you can sit out the back enjoying a light lunch and downing some cold ones catching up with friends and always meeting new people! The Royal Oak is a fantastic place to go any time, so I strongly suggest you do people!

The parma was very dissapointing. The vegies served with them were significantly over-boiled, but sadly, was the better part of the meal.

The fillet was OK, but it was coated in SALSA (yes, the old-el-paso style) and tasty cheese, it really didn't work. As a result I ate just the fillet and the vegies, then left.

A pub that can't manage a parma, especially when it's being advertised as "tonights special" leaves a lot to be desired.
