Welcome to Northern Exposure and to another stunning Tasmanian spring.
And a very warm welcome to spring! There's no denying it's been a long, wet winter. However, the days are starting to feel longer and the city is full of the first signs of the new season.
As the weather starts to warm up, it's time to shake off the winter hibernation and enjoy the longer days outside of our homes.
And luckily there's plenty to keep us busy.
If you're yet to visit the new Royal Park rehang, we highly recommend popping by for a visit. This much-anticipated collection reflects a more inclusive and diverse range of works, with more prominence of LGBT+ and Indigenous voices.
As City of Launceston Mayor, Albert van Zetten said "this is an exciting new direction for QVMAG, once a colonial gallery now telling contemporary stories about our community, our history and our country."
The exhibition welcomes back some favourite local artists, Australian icons and hidden gems from the QVMAG collection.
There are also plenty of events to fill your calendar this spring, from the Farmgate Festival that introduces you to the farmers dotting the banks of the Tamar, to the much-anticipated selection of gardening events held in the city and surrounds.
With the sun shining and blossoms punctuating the air, it's time to shake off the last of winter, get outside and make the most of Launceston.
We hope you enjoy this edition of Northern Exposure.
