Went to the Gorge for a look and enjoyed it greatly. The chair lift is a little daunting at first but you will enjoy it and a great view of the area. The price was $10 one way or $15 return which was not bad value, very nice kept grounds and during the summer there is a pool which is fenced off and has a lifeguard in attendance.
The meals were a little pricey but nice and great view over the area I would expect if you like to walk around it will take you about an hour, make sure you go across the bridge and enjoy the view.

We thought it would be nice here but didnt realise we would nearly spend a whole day here. It was just peaceful and so close to the main part of Launceston. We enjoyed a lunch at the cafe, done the chair lift as well as walked around a bit.

You probably only need about 1/2 a day here, but if you just want to relax and take it is its a great place to do just that.

Beautiful weather and location for the Duck Reach walk! Definitely worth the effort! The cafe at First Basin was a little pricey, so we headed back into the city for food.

Only a short trip outside of the main part of town & you arrive in a beautiful & tranquil place. I remember my first trip here I couldn't believe such a beautiful place existed such a short drive from town. Perfect place for a short stroll or if you're super keen and the outdoors you can easily spend an entire day here walking.
