Gourlay's Sweet Shop was a part of the childhood pleasures of many generations of Tasmanians, especially children from the country visiting Launceston on a special occasion. Children are more worldly now but even the most hardened child (or adult for that matter) is likely to be moved to smile at row upon row of large jars of boiled lollies. Try the bon-bons, acid drops, barley sugar, black balls, or the unique leatherwood-honey drops.
The shop closes at 5.30pm on weekdays and 2pm on Saturday.
The factory where all these delicious sweets are made is part of the Penny Royal complex, one of Launceston's major tourist attractions. If you're visiting Penny Royal make sure you don't miss Gourlay's. Penny Royal is open from 9am to 4.30pm seven days a week.
