Leisure Inn Penny Royal was built originally as a corn mill in 1840. It was relocated and rebuilt over 130 years, stone by stone, into a heritage hotel with modern furnishings. 

The hotel is less than a 10-minute drive from Cataract Gorge, which has a sightseeing chairlift, Victorian gardens and an outdoor pool (November to March).

Other city highlights include the weekly Saturday harvest market and wine tasting -- the city is part of the Tamar Valley wine route and is known for producing some of Australia's best sparkling wine.

Learn about Tasmanian history at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery or visit Franklin House, a Georgian house home to a 180-year-old oak tree in its grounds.
