I was looking forward to walking across this bridge and wasn't disappointed. I had it to myself which was even better as I went on an overcast autumn day.Stop half way across and enjoy the view of the rushing water below and the soaring cliffs above. after you exit the bridge(heading towards the restaurant), take the track and steps to the left up to the lookout platform near the bridge.

As suspension bridges go they have made this one pretty secure so it has only a minor sway. The views from the middle both up the cataract and into the first basin are the best in the place. If you take the chair lift in this is a good way back.

This bridge was originally opened in 1904 but it was destroyed in the 1929 floods and underwent two reconstructions in 1934 and 2003.

As the 2022 flood waters rushed down the gorge just below the wooden decking and bashed around the steel pylons supporting the bridge and parts of trees and trunks washed down the Gorge we could understand why the bridge had been closed on safety grounds notwithstanding its sturdy structure.

The approximately 60 metre long bridge is one of only three ways to cross the gorge the others being the chairlift and the Kings bridge.

Still a wonderful piece of engineering and a great sight.

Walk over this suspension bridge as you hike around the perimeter of Cataract Gorge Basin. Magnificent views up the Gorge and over the basin. A sturdy suspension bridge with very little swing. Beautiful historic bridge.

Great suspension bridge found in the Cataract Gorge. Fee to walk across and not that shaky. Great views from the bridge of the water and the gorge. Definately a must to walk across whilst visiting the Gorge and wheelchair friendly.

Great walk to the bridge a must do if you are in Launceston . You can also walk back another way through the Gorge. Cafe at the end for coffee and snacks and a swimming pool if you care to take a dip. A must see.

We visited Gorge today TWICE .. in one day. Early morning run 6-7pm along the easy trail to the playground and back. What a beautiful way to start the day, with nature and amazing views.

Then we brought kids to playground and see wild life in the afternoon. We also walked across the bridge and around the swimming pool area. Yes! you heard right! There is FREE public swimming pool !
You can also swim in the reverse/ water if you are brave enough.

NOTE: bring water bottles, hat, swim wear, and some cash ( there are restaurants and cable chairlift available - $)

Very nice to walk along it does rock a bit but nice and safe to walk along.

It spans the best part of the gorge for views, only a few minute walk from the information centre.

Quite a lot of walkers on the pathways and trials - but it was holiday high season in Tassie. Very beautiful to walk in a natural setting so close to a city.

Worth walking over if you are already at Cataract George. Read the plaque for some of the background
