After the student tours today which ended at City Park, I had a quick dash to Design Tasmania to check if the Artbikes are ready for service. Yes, they are. HURRAY!
For visitors to Launceston, if you don't have a car and if you don't want to walk the distance, the Artbike is an ideal option to tour around city Launceston. The bike is free to hire for a day and will come with a helmet, a lock and a city map.
Address of Design Tasmania: 55 Brisbane Street, Launceston (corner of Brisbane Street and Tamar Street). The centre opens 9:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Friday and 10:00am to 4:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. Design Tasmania is itself also a tourist attraction exhibiting top Tasmania design and woodcraft.
Another upcoming tourist friendly initiative will be free WiFi in Launceston CBD. However, the launch date is yet to be known.
