The tiny village of Lilydale lays nestled under Mount Arthur, one of the state's highest peaks, in a lush valley 25 km North-East of Launceston, the second largest city in Tasmania. With a population of around 350, Lilydale is a warm friendly community.


First settled in the 1860's the district abounds in both rural and natural beauty. Primarily an agricultural area, Lilydale has internationally recognised vineyards in its surrounding hills. Many artists live in the area and it is also a popular area for the production of pottery and craftwork. Many of the Electricty Poles in the town have been painted by local artists, leading to the township now being known as 'Lilydale - Home of the Painted Poles'.

A tour through this picturesque area could include visits to Hollybank Forest Reserve, The Lilydale Falls Reserve, Merthyr Park or a walk to the summit of Mt Arthur, for those interested in our flora and fauna. Many of the local vineyards are open to the public as well.
