Life in Campbell Town

Located on the banks of the Elizabeth River, Campbell Town is approximately 70 kilometres to the south of Launceston. In its early days, Campbell Town was an important stop-over on the multi-day coach trip between Hobart and Launceston. To this day, it’s Tasmanian tradition to stop in Campbell Town on the drive between the two cities – a tradition which has led to an above-average offering of fantastic eateries.

Gazetted in 1821, Campbell Town is one of Tasmania’s most historic towns, boasting a legacy of broad streets, well established European trees, and stately colonial architecture. In modern times, Campbell Town is a bustling hub at the centre of a thriving agricultural region. And its proximity to Launceston makes this a viable commute for urban dwellers looking to experience rural medicine.
