At the Tailrace Centre we do things differently

We begin differently by being situated just 10 minutes from the Launceston CBD making the Tailrace Centre  an ideal venue to get away from the hustle and bustle of the work place and the inner city distractions your guests will be able to relax and focus.

We also know that it is more than food.

It is about bringing vision to life and creating a memorable experience.

Whether it is a boardroom meeting, a lunch time meeting, an all day conference, the launch of a new product, a pre event function, a private cocktail party or a sit-down dinner we try to tailor each element to design a unique event specific to you.

When you choose Tailrace Centre we will strive to make sure that your event is the very best, as well as making the event individual to you.
