Get ready for adventure at Penny Royal – The Advocate

If you’re looking for a place to wine, dine and adventure, and just two minutes from the centre of Launceston, then keep Penny Royal Village at the top of your must-see list. Walking up the stairs of this recently developed Launceston gem you’ll instantly feel the magic. Here, you can immerse yourself in the story of infamous escaped convict Matthew Brady, who was also known as Tasmania’s gentleman bushranger as he won the hearts of many during his life. Jump aboard the Matthew Brady Dark Ride, a fun, educational – and sometimes thrilling – ride that takes you underground to 1825 Van Diemen’s Land on a barge, passing by true-to-life animatronics which tell the tale of Brady and his gang. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous then try out the 100-metre zip-line which runs straight over Penny Royal’s man-made lagoon. And that’s not the end of the adventures with a rope bridge cliff walk, quick jump, rock climbing, haunted Sarah Island, cruising on the Brig Tamar and fossicking for gold all on offer. Why not take advantage of one of the multi-adventure passes, including the park pass that includes the Matthew Brady Dark Ride, Brig Tamar cruise, gold fossicking and Barefoot Sensations or the cliff pass, which incorporates rock climbing, zip lines, quick jump and the cliff walk. But the magic doesn’t stop once you’ve had your fill of the adventures, as Penny Royal also boasts mouth-watering food and locally-produced wines. Here, there are no shortage of options, with a modern Australian restaurant specialising in seasonal dining, a picture-perfect wine bar deck overlooking the site, the Relbia Estate Wine Cellar Door and old-English style Brady’s Tavern serving local beers, ciders, wines and wood-fired pizzas. If you choose to eat at Penny Royal Restaurant, ask about the 99 Supper Club – a tantalising two-course shared menu that includes a bottle of wine for just $99 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. And those heading to Brady’s Tavern should try ‘Joe’s Pizza’ – the favourite of Josef Chromy the man behind this iconic redevelopment and Josef Chromy Wines.
