Wallaby Walkabout Tours

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Launceston History Walks (with Wallaby Walkabout Tours) are completely unique experiences that are all hosted by local historian, and Tasmanian Aboriginal historian, Geoff McLean. Geoff is the only guide and there is no scripting involved as Geoff can provide historical information on a variety of topics. His knowledge, passion and storytelling are a class above others and on the history walks he takes his guests behind the scenes around Launceston and in the Cataract Gorge.
Guests will get to explore back allies and laneways that even locals don’t know their histories of, and the secrets they hold. There are entertaining stories of the characters who created Launceston, some of them ex-convicts who went on to great success. Geoff also intertwines his personal connections to, and escapades in, Launceston.
Geoff’s tours of the Cataract Gorge provide more than ancient and contemporary history of the area but also the Tasmanian Aboriginal cultural connections to it. Guests will stand in an ancient river course and discover its history as Geoff discusses its significance to Aboriginal people. The key element of the experiences are finding out about Tasmanian Aboriginal connections to the Gorge and being able to identify and taste local bush foods.
