Visit historic villages of Longford & Evandale



Located south west of Launceston, the historic town of Longford is the centre for the local farming district. The town is known for its convict-built houses, mansions and gardens. There are also some nice arts and crafts stores and place to eat.



Located south of Launceston, Evandale is a Georgian village, best known for its 19th-century buildings and relatively untouched streetscape. They have a good market every Sunday with more than 100 stalls of crafts and food. In February there is the Evandale Village Fair and the National Penny Farthing (old fashioned bike) Championships.
