Gorge...Wetlands not far away...City park...Foreshore walk Dam...Older homes...Penny Royal was a good place had an amusement place but it has been closed for over 3 years so dont expect to get into that amusement, I hope someone will fix it all up and get it working again.It was very enjoyable..Pitty the council or someone doesnt come in and fix it. Beacons field and Batman bridge to Bell bay is within a days drive you can go from launceston to Greens beach to George town back to Launceston and still be home for Tea.
