Enjoyed the chair lift. Getting off the lift on the other side head left if you want to walk down a slipped path past daffodils (late September). Signs to the suspension bridge for the walk back were non existent but most paths get you there. Not a bad trek. Parking costs you and I overestimated the time I would need.... More

This is a beautiful place close to the city. As we walked around on the well maintained boardwalks towards the bridge, the beautiful cliffs were visible. We could see peacocks and other animals in the area.

A walk to the rotunda, the vibrant hues of the peacocks, the abundance of daffodils and the spectacular views made this the perfect way to start a crisp but sunny day in Launceston. Magical!

Outstanding views with subtle exercise (or more strenuous if desired). Chairlift was really fun for the kids. A really terrific attraction

Visited Cataract Gorge today and went for a pleasant ride on the chair lift. Very peaceful and scenic. Nice walks and the suspension bridge was also good to walk across with good vantage points for photos. Peacocks put on a good display, also for photos. Worth a visit here!!!

My family and I visited Cataract George recently, due to the recent amount of rain in Tassie it was absolutely spectacular. Unfortunately we arrived quite late in the afternoon so didn't have enough time to see everything. But what we did see was spectacular

Started here by getting a ride across the gorge on the cable car. This is a must as the views are magnificent. Walked along the gorge towards Launceston and again found amole photographic moments. Back to main area visited a couple of the lookouts. Most people should cope with these but directions to are not great. You need a photo... More

Such a lovely Park to visit. Lots of walks for all types. Suspension bridge, peacocks, wallabies and the chair lift gave us plenty to see and do
