There is only one cruise company operating out of Launceston - it just has several websites to catch all the websurfers. It does a daily lunch cruise and frequent, short jaunts into the gorge.

I have done the lunch cruise once and it's quite good, but a bit long. You go upriver through the wineries to the big Batman Bridge and back. The short cruise is good fun and I've done it several times, but no food. :(

And missed the accommodation bit. Good mid-ranged options with easy walk of the city center are Clarion City Park Grand, Balmoral on York, maybe Sebel (if you can get a good price on www.wotif.com ), Quality Hotel Colonial, Best western Plus.

More budget options would include PennyRoyal World (near the gorge and a bit further from the CBD), Commodore Regent, Hotel Launceston.

And Kurrajong House is a great B&B, Hi George is a bit cheaper.
