Come and visit the fantastic Gorge before it is ruined by an awful set of 'gondolas' and intrusive pylons destroying this unique part of Launceston.

If in Cataract Gorge Reserve, take a few minutes to traverse the suspension bridge and enjoy its history. Highly recommended.

A beautiful bridge in a nice setting, a gentle stroll from either end to the two main hubs. Well maintained.

It sways! Don't be put off by that because it's a great old style footbridge with good views and architecture - plus the style is a suspension bridge, so it's not going to break. Just don't have anyone run across it when you're in the...More

It's fine for a 2 year old, but with close supervision. It is a long walk though. You will have to be prepared to carry your little love around a bit.
