The Location

This North Tasmanian city is picturesque and reflects its colonial history, you can also see Victorian and Georgian influences mixed in with the more modern architecture, which all adds to the overall charm of the place. Here, you can enjoy all the facilities of modern city living with excellent schools and affordable housing, whilst being free of traffic and large commutes. Launceston is the “hub” of the North and is a location for those seeking an escape from the frantic big city life for a more laidback pace of living.

And ask any Australian, Tasmania is known for its beautiful fresh produce and seafood, and this city makes the most of this reputation, attracting “foodies” with its restaurants and cafes.

The temperate climate and four distinct seasons - including gloriously warm summers without the oppressive humidity or heat, and cool winters - mean the region has perfect wine growing conditions and this is reflected in the excellent wines produced along the Tamar River, with lots of little boutique wineries. 

Easily accessible, there is a local airport and short daily flights to Melbourne and Sydney, making connections to international flights really easy.

We have a dedicated Registration Team who seamlessly manage all aspects of your regulatory and temporary work visa applications after you accept a suitable job offer, at no cost to you.  Our aim is to get you ready to start work within agreed timeframes and with minimal hassle to you or your new employer.
