Join us for a walking tour like no other, exploring and discovering Launceston’s fabulous historic churches, their organs and their bells.

This tour will be led by Ian Boersma, Heritage Tasmania Works Manager, and an expert in heritage buildings and their conservation. He will share his passion for Tasmania’s historic churches, providing insights about their history, architecture and use. The afternoon will be filled with sensory delight as you explore the interiors of some of Launceston’s wonderful churches and experience the musical tones of their organs brought to life by organist Hans Meijer (musician and organ conservator). Apart from experiencing the unique voice of each organ and the particular acoustics of each church, there may be some opportunities to hear the peel of the church bells too!
