The picturesque village of Lilydale, 28 kilometres north-east of Launceston in the foothills of Mt Arthur, has a rich history of forestry, agriculture, tourism and arts.
Lilydale is increasingly becoming the northern gateway to Tasmania's east coast, offering a beautiful drive through quaint towns, a tapestry of farms, endless adventure, sport, food and wine tourism attractions, and natural wonders.
From award-winning vineyards to farm-gates to boutique accommodation to spectacular waterfalls to arts and crafts to gorgeous English gardens – the Lilydale area has cemented itself as a leading destination in its own right.
On the first Sunday of every month the town comes alive with the Village Market offering a range of stallholders with fresh produce, home-made goodies, arts, entertainment and more.
Lilydale is also known for a large alleged number of sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger, as well as a series of painted telegraph poles by local artists along the main street.
Lilydale is a 25-min drive (28 km) north-east of Launceston.
