"Convenient Location"

West Launceston is located only 5 minutes from Launceston and sits atop the hill overlooking the valley. Close to schools, shops, parks and amenities, West Launceston is the perfect location, to buy, sell, live, invest or rent in.

"West is Best!"

Set up high on the hill, only minutes from the Launceston CBD and Cataract Gorge with beautiful views over central Launceston, located close to the Launceston General Hospital, Parks, shops, schools and cafes. West Launceston is a place that I have lived and invested in, I love it!

As the owner of a Property Management business in Launceston and working in the Real Estate industry for almost 25 years, I am lucky enough to assist people looking to invest or finding homes for people moving to our State. Living in Launceston is simple, safe and it has such a great community spirit.

"SUNNY WEST LAUNCESTON"

West Launceston has the perfect mix of new and old homes and is perfect for singles, couples and families. Being home to the iconic Cataract Gorge, it feels like summer all year round in this prime spot. Within walking distance to the CBD, West Launceston is convenient and has a great neighbourhood community feeling.

"One of the best!"

West Launceston is my second favourite suburb in Launceston. It catches all of the morning sun which is super appealing, it has a beautiful mix of old and new dwellings. It is well lit and has great footpaths. The best thing about West Launceston is the easy access to the iconic Gorge, you are right there to pop your towel over your shoulder and stroll down for a dip.

"Highly recommend West Launceston"

Lived here for the past 6 years and LOVE West Launceston. Local shops, iconic gorge close by, good transport and close to town and easy access to major roads, parks and views. One of the best inner suburban areas of Launceston. Mostly middle class and friendly people, with a lot of families.

"Getting worse and worse..."

More and more low rent, violent, abusive no hopers moving into the area all the time, to the point where decent people don't feel safe in their own homes. The Merrys Lane area specifically is getting particularly bad.

Don't get me wrong, there are good people too. Many of them low income, but still decent, moral, law abiding folks, but sadly the influx of thieving, drunken, frequently abusive, violent and threatening young bogans, who have absolutely no respect for other people or their property, much less for the police, have turned many areas into something akin to the worst parts of Ravenswood.

If you are considering moving to this area then do research the property and exact area you are considering moving in to, and then if you are lucky enough to find a peaceful area, just pray that you don't get new neighbours of the drunken, loud and confrontational bogan variety after you move in (as happened with us), as sadly that seems to be getting all too commonplace.

We have personally lived here for over 5 years, and the last 2 years or so have seen things just going from bad to worse, with the past year or so especially bad. In fact it is so bad we are looking into affordable alternatives ourselves, hopefully ones far from here.

As much as I hate to say it, I could only really recommend the area these days to students and others who aren't looking for truly long term accomodation, but just need a place while they study, or as a stepping stone towards somewhere better.

Great for

  • Close to city
  • Close to hospital & schools
  • Decent public transport system

Not great for

  • Too many criminal and borderline criminal bogans
  • Increasing crime rate, particularly in relation to car theft and burglary
  • Russian roulette as far as liklihood of getting stuck with some truly horrendous neighbours
