Legana - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located to the north of Launceston, on the West Tamar Highway, is the small town of Legana. Legana comes from the Aboriginal word for ‘fresh water’, since it is at the point where the Tamar River becomes fresh water.

There is a historic colonial Georgian homestead property which is one of Australia’s oldest houses, that sits beside a sweeping bend in the Tamar River named ‘Freshwater Point’ by the explorer Matthew Flinders. The original main entrance faces the river, a private jetty where the early settlers traded with the local indigenous people. It was also the main method of transport for the first hundred years of the property.

There are large elm tree on the property that are more than a century old. Visitors can experience the property through its bed and breakfast accommodation.

Check out our listing of Legana accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
