Cataract Gorge, Launceston (Tasmania - Part 1)

We arrived there in Launceston on the Anzac day, at around 11 am the town still very quite, there were not much shops open.  My tummy was already screaming, so we popped in some random cafe along the main road, Banjo's Cafe.  Later on, I just found out that Banjo's actually pretty popular for local with few branches around town.

Although there were not much stores open, but the weather was lovely on that day.  So it cheer me up a little bit.  We took a short walk (about half an hour) from our hotel to Cataract Gorge.  There are actually two ways to reach there.  First, is from tiny mountain side (a small way after the bridge, if you walk from the city central) or from the town itself passing houses.  The first options may sounds very long walk but in fact is it isn't.  The street more flat compared to another way which the street leading you to an up and down steeply.

Hotel Grand Chancellor, Launceston

The hotel look a bit old with a colonial touch.  But overall, it is very comfortable and clean with a great location as well.  The staffs were friendly and helpful too.  Nice hotel to stay.

As we thought, it won't be much restaurants open today, we decided to have a fine dinner at the hotel.
