Worth a visit & if you go get the chair lift $30pp return . A truly spectacular & naturally beautiful place. Bar & Cafe to rest & enjoy after your walk around the Gorge is nice too !

“You must do this in Launceston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great Place, you need 1 hour minimum to do at least the chairlift ride, cup of tea and either walk back over the suspension bridge or the chairlift again, remember to sit on the other side this time.

We spent 3 hours here and there was still more to do and see, if you like walking and views that is. The gorge was not quite a torrent as in the picture above, but the views were still spectacular.

The peacocks were in full display and there was abundant other wild life to view, enjoy the tranquillity just 5 minutes from town.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We didn't have time to stop, however we did have a short look around and it was absolutely beautiful, very steep all around the gorge which is to be expected, but well worth going too.

Loved the chairlift ride. The flowers were in bloom so the place looked amazing. Spent over 3 hours taking in the sights and enjoying the Lyrebirds showing off.
