“Wonderful forest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The airwalk is a wonderful to see what the upper story of the forest looks like. There are signs identifying the tree species both on the ground and above so you know what you are looking at.

The walk to the airwalk is up hill however the track is well made, and there is a bench to rest on half way up.

Highly recommended is the one hour walk which crosses the Huon and Picton Rivers by suspension bridge. The eastern side is on a very well made path where you can walk abreast, while the western side is a single file forest walk. It can be a bit muddy in patches. I'd recommend doing the eastern side first so your return is on the more interesting track. The suspension bridges can be intimidating for some, however they don't move too much.

“Worth the Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The drive here seemed ages but well worth it. The entry price for a family only covered 2 adults and 2 children but the man on the gate put our family of five through on the one ticket which was a great start for us.
The walk itself to the airwalk was scenic and enjoyable, however, there are quite a few stairs and steep paths to negotiate. The view was great and the one hour circuit walk back to the swinging bridges was very enjoyable (but again steep and slippery in parts).
We had lunch at the cafe and really enjoyed it. It was very crowded and busy but we were served quickly and didn't wait too long for food.
My husband and one of our kid's shared the beef burger and chips. My daughter and I shared the chicken burger and chips and my youngest had the kid's "fisn n chips" and it was plenty. Iced chocolates were huge and coffee was great.
Whilst the weather was a bit rainy and drizzly, the whole experience of the Tahune Forest AirWalk was really enjoyable for our family.

“Awesome trees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It was very peaceful walking along the path through the trees to the airwalk. Once we got onto the platform you really felt like you were in the tree tops. I'm not scared of heights, but you would probably be a bit apprehensive if you were. A great view of the surrounding forest area. Talk the time to go to the swinging bridges as well.
