The Post Office opened on 12 July 1865, replaced by Hoddle's Creek in 1869, reopened on 1 September 1880, finally closing in 1994.

The township was from 1901 until 1965 served by a railway station on the Warburton line.

Launching Place has many camping grounds where families go camping, hiking and boating in the Yarra River.

It is believed that Launching Place is named after the spot on the Yarra River where the logs (freshly cut down in the valley) were floated down the river to be milled in Melbourne. That is, the logs were "launched" at this place along the Yarra River. This was prior to the construction of the Upper Yarra Reservoir.

The Derelict Aircraft Museum was located in Launching Place. As of 2017 closed and dismantled.

A new Parking lot has recently been made ,making access to the Warburton Rail Trail and Launching Place General Store easier. It is located behind the Launching Place General Store.
