After landing in Launceston in the morning, this was our first destination and it was beautiful and well worth it. We walked the short loop walk and then the slightly longer length of the Gorge which I would highly recommend. I am not in great...More

We unknowingly chose to walk the Zig Zag track (recommended for hikers!) as there were no signs to indicate the difficulty of this. However we made it, and we're all pretty chuffed we did! The Gorge is spectacular and not to be missed.

There's some great walks around the gorge offering some pretty views, a chair lift which isn't too expensive. Recommend taking it up, and walking back or the other way round.

It is unusual to find a place like this within walking distance of the CBD. Well worth the visit and the time.

I was surprised that the Gorge was rated the number one thing to do in Launceston, but our whole family loved it. Lots of walking options and the chair lift is great fun.

What starts off as a walking track along a narrow creek gorge expands out into a large area with play equipment, cafes, swimming pool and expansive grassed area. Incredibly picturesque place. Highly recommended for day walks with families, bike riding or picnics. Multiple walking trails...More

We spent the morning walking along the gorge and took a round trip chairlift, it was a really memorable walk and helped work up an appetite for lunch.

We walked to Cataract Gorge from our hotel in Launceston's CBD and had a great time. The area is beautiful and is an excellent spot for a picnic, due to all of the facilities (BBQs, tables and chairs, toilets and some undercover areas). I would...More

a great Free activity for the family to do (apart from the car parking and chair lift) there were lots of different walks for different needs. We did an interesting walk to Penny Royal world. Lovely and clean with all amenities that were needed.

Agree with Kaijunjia. If you really want to hike, then Freycinet National park has plenty of varied walks for all fitness levels and great views too. The kayaking is absolutely worth it.

If you are keen to see young kangaroos ask your travel agent to look up zoos or animal reserves. Each state in Australia will have a number of options. The babies live inside a pouch on the mother Roos stomach.
