This is one of my favourite places, perfect for so many things. A place to bring the kids, an endless choice of walks from leisurely to hard core hiking, a swim in summer either in the pool or in the basin or river, a meal at the amazing Gorge Restaurant or at the more relaxed café or even a perfect...

Good views over the gorge, some very pleasant and easy walks as well as some more strenuous ones - cable way seems a little expensive.

A wonderful place to visit and it is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Launceston. There are peacocks and wallabies galore and you will see the beautiful Superb Blue Wrens. The Gorge itself is really rugged. It is great to be there when they release water from the dam and the white water kayakers race down twisting... More

We walked up to the Gorge without realizing what we were going to find. What a surprise - what a gorgeous area. Could spend a whole day there. We walked out the 'hikers' side which was an effort but worth it. Did not like the peacocks walking around the café - always a turnoff.

Really enjoyed the chairlift, scenic walk and suspension bridge. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day, you definitely would need to go when it's not raining to enjoy the experience. Baby wallabies came close to us, peacocks walk around you at the rotunda cafe. Overall so glad we made this our first stop in Launceston.
