Active Launceston

Runners, kid and mum

Active Launceston aims to get people moving and feeling great through a series of programs and events.

Active Launceston is managed by the University of Tasmania in partnership with City of Launceston.

Since 2008, Active Launceston has become a multi award-winning community driven project that has developed a strong community profile, an excellent reputation, and a highly-recognisable brand and community identity.

The projects events, programs, website, organisational structure, partnerships and levels of community engagement have gained accolades at a state, national and international level. 

Active Launceston is now delivered under a well-established framework including policies and procedures to enable successful delivery of a complex community-wide health promotion project.

Walking Tracks

Linking our city is a series of walking tracks and exercise trails for people to enjoy.

Whether you're keen to tackle the terrain of the Cataract Gorge or stroll along the Seaport Boardwalk, there's a path for everyone and every pedal.

Bike Trails

Tasmania is fast becoming known for its world-class mountain bike facilities, so it's no surprise Launceston features plenty of trails for riders of all levels. 

The Tamar Bicycle Users Group (TBUG) has developed a guide to bike trails around Launceston. Download and read the brochure here(PDF, 1MB)

Many of our roadways are also equipped with cycling lanes, meaning you can peddle your way safely around the city.

The Launceston Bike Strategy outlines our vision to get more people cycling, more often. The Strategy's primary goals are to increase the number of cyclists and boost safety around cycling.
