An excellent day trip on the edge of Launceston. I recommend the chairlift and then the hike to the lookout, if you're fit. It's an easy walk down and across the suspension bridge. You're sure to come across wallabies, peacocks and maybe a wombat!

What a great place to visit and also free. Could easily spend a half day walking around and admiring the postcard like scenery. Beautiful in any season, totally recommended.

Easy access by foot (10-15 min) or car( 6-7 min) from town centre. If you are in good shape and like hiking, I recommend walking the whole area for a couple of hours if weather is good. Scenery is gentle and pretty rather than wild....More

We enjoyed our visit of the Cataract Gorge. As you drive up the hill you get beautiful views of the mountains. The weather is beautiful. Of course you have to be careful as the roads are abit windy and so keep to the speed limits....More

Well worth it. Whatever cruise you choose it's all ok. This place is special geologically and spiritually.

Cataract Gorge was on my to-do list for Launceston. Since it was a beautiful day, I did the Zig Zag trail walk. While it was a moderately hard walk, it was worth the effort. I started the trail near the chair lift and did a...More

This is a very attractive gorge with an easy walkway and fun chairlift. Lovely park like area with wonderful playground, toilet facilities and an open swimming pool for use in the summer. Very pleased we made the effort to go here.

Adeline, my honest suggestion would be skipping the gorge and save the two hours for the Freycinet where there are so many to see and experience. The kayak they run in Coles Bay takes 3 hours along the coast, which is far... More
