Gorgeous area to visit. You can pace yourself and take a short walk or longer stroll. Worth going to see!

Fun time. The chair is the longest single span in the world and very exciting. It's not very expensive $ 15 return. The walks are amazing and the peacocks are funny. Enjoyed it immensely.

This area is a short walk from Launceston city center and is worth doing. There are two walks to chose from, an average joe type of one and one for those with a little more fitness. The views are excellent and the garden reserve at the end is a delight to walk around with a shop for snacks and drinks... More

Really surprised that with warning signs of the current, snags etc there were no railings or fences anywhere to stop the errant tourist. Even the swimming pool has no safety fencesand is completely open and not very far from the childrens palyground. Other than that very pretyy natural and a good walk

Whether it be winter time when in full flood or summer time by the pool, this area is a must see for visitors to Launceston. Walk across the suspension bridge to the fairy dell with its many peacocks.Take the chairlift for a birds eye view, this area is stunning.

I've been here a number of times at it never disappoints. I loved bringing my husband and daughter here this time, a first for both. We enjoyed the chair lift across and then walked back over the bridge. We didn't do any of the bigger walks as our daughter is only young. She particularly loved the wildlife that was walking...

The Gorge is right on my back door step! It's beautiful and amazing. Just a short walk from the cbd if you are staying in central Launceston. The views are breathtaking, the scenery fabulous, the walks wonderful. With a choice of cafes, a chairlift and curious wildlife or in summer take the plunge in the gorge basin, its a Launceston...
