Next door to the Information Centre at the main Post Office, it is very pleasant to hear the tower clock chime every 15 minutes. It is an interesting old contruction as well and well worth looking at.

Interesting to see and hear the chimes, opposite the gorgeous Town Hall building.Visitors info centre next door. There are so many beautiful well maintained historic buildings in Launceston, all of which to see by foot. We spent 4-5 hours just walking round admiring them.

Orientation maps, accommodations, restaurants, historic landmarks and activities in this interesting city can all be found at the Visitors Centre. It saved me valuable time and labor to just go there first and follow its helpful guidance.

It was built to commemorate the centenary of Launceston (settled in 1806), so built in 1906, with the clock and chimes handed over to the city in 1910.
