History

Hargates' history not only reflects the heart and soul of Launceston but the vision and passion one man carried for his home and family.

As a grand sentinel watching over the sweeping vista of the valley and a river at one time lined with masted ships, Hargate has measured the progress of time in a city where heritage is as much loved as its gentle lifestyle and beautiful scenery.
