Gee’s Lookout

Gee’s Lookout, a tract of land that abuts Launceston’s Gorge, has an apocalyptic vibe created by debris, wrecked houses and sprawling unrestricted junk. The lookout affords a wonderful view of the dichotomy between two ways of seeing Tasmania – on the one hand old and mysterious, on the other new and vibrant. There is this sense of looking forward and looking backwards at the same time.
