Holiday Travel Guide
Brisbane Street Mall

Launceston’s best shopping is in easy reach at this busy community hub, where intriguing laneways and historic arcades branch off from a central sheltered mall.

Brisbane Street Mall is Launceston’s premier shopping destination with a range of exclusive boutiques, busy department stores, great local dining and unique Tasmanian crafts. Established in 1975, this pedestrianised strip was one of the country’s first designated malls. Come here today to shop, rendezvous with friends and family or do some people-watching. Relax at a café, refresh your wardrobe or pick up souvenirs and quality Tasmanian-made items to remember your stay in Launceston.

Stretching between Charles Street and St. John Street, Brisbane Street Mall is a long strip lined with a diverse selection of shops and cafés. Walk through the mall and take a seat at one of the benches surrounded by flower planters and trees. Look up to admire the wave-like shape of the mall’s roof, which is completely transparent to allow natural light into the space.

One of the mall’s most exciting features is the art installation section that doubles as a children’s play area. The interactive artworks on display have included brightly coloured pillow-shaped sculptures, which make sounds when climbed on.

Spend some time checking out the local shops and department stores. Victorian-era façades front modern stores throughout the majority of the mall. Peruse books and magazines at one of the state’s oldest bookstores. Browse for Tasmanian-made homewares, locally crafted souvenirs and tasty regional produce. Try on a new outfit at the busy department stores or pick up the latest in technology at the mall’s electronics shops.

You might see local musicians and street performers busking within the mall. At Christmas time, enjoy weekend performances by choral groups and see the city’s towering Christmas tree installed at the eastern end of the mall.

The Brisbane Street Mall is situated in the heart of Launceston and is easily accessible on foot from other downtown areas. Bus stops are located at the eastern end of the mall and parking lots are available within a short walking distance. The mall is a no-smoking zone and accessible at any time of the day.

"Well presented and maintained hotel in a city location. One of the staff came across a little rude as I had lost my wallet so my travel companion had to put down a card for a deposit and had some minor issues. The other staff member who served us was excellent."
