Loved the suspension bridge. Loved the nature walks, and the natural environment with the animals just being themselves. Enjoyed the Chair lift. and that is was in the city of Launceston

Visited this place for my nieces wedding. Parked on the wrong side so we had to travel across the Gorge by cable car. What a fantastic experience. We finally got to were the wedding was being held and was surprised on how great the location was. Would recommend having a wedding at this locality as the surroundings are exceptional.

If i lived here this place would be my go-to for evening runs. An overall great park. The chair lift is a cool novelty but nothing too spectacular.

Great place to stroll and enjoy nice weather! We went on the Chairlift, which gives a different perspective of the backdrop.

I was told the walk was just 15 mins or so. Off I set up the very steep path and was wondering how far to the gorge. Finally got to it and was pleasantly surprised. I then found the easy path back, which was on the northern side of the bridge. I took my friends back for a look in... More

The gorge is tucked away but well worth the trip, there are various walks of different levels of difficulty some quite rugged, the views are worth it as are the gardens, for the less active a chairlift goes into the gorge over the pool and would still offer a good view.

We walked from the main road, crossed the bridge and followed the path all the way to the suspension bridge and back. Only a few joggers after 7.30 pm which made the stroll very pleasant. The gorge was small compared to many gorges we had visited. But the water was very clean and tranquil. A positive feeling overall.

Everything was lovely, despite a downpour we had a great visit. Easy to walk and stunning to look at.
