The Turret House

Bed and Breakfast

One of Launceston’s most iconic heritage properties, The Turret House combines the grace and elegance of yesteryear with modern comfort and convenience to create an ideal base for your stay in Northern Tasmania.
The Turret House is a picturesque Queen Anne style home built in 1902 by prominent Launceston retailer, George McKinlay. It features a sweeping verandah, lead lighting, decorative cornices, ceiling roses, fireplaces and mantles and, of course, its famous turret which overlooks Launceston and the confluence of the North Esk and Tamar Rivers.
The Turret House is perfectly located within a five minute walk of the spectacular Cataract Gorge, a 15-minute walk to the CBD and right on the famous Tamar Valley Wine Route and Touring Route. As an added bonus it is only minutes walk from two of Launceston’s most awarded restaurants – Stillwater and Cataract on Paterson.
Your hosts, Jenny and Ken Davey, both 5th generation Tasmanians, have extensive knowledge of the region and a true appreciation for all it has to offer. They are happy to share their experience to assist you in creating a memorable stay.
