“Great Walk,Great Talk!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The river bridge has an amazing path leading up to it and is a lovely place to have a morning walk or anything along the lines of it.Also,the staff at the restaurant and souvenir store around are always happy to give an insiders view!
Overall,I'd go walking very often if it wasnt for the toll counters :3
But just love it and the suspension bridge has a wonderful view and feel about it :)

“Good exercise”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

A walk from the Storms River Entrance to the suspension bridge is about 900m (according to the sign). The board-walk takes you along the edge of the hill, through the forest, before a steep walk down to the suspension bridges (there are three). Along the way you get great views of the ocean, and just before descending the last part you get a good view of the bridges - stop here if you've had enough.
Walking on the main bridge you get a good view of the canyon. And on the other side there is an interesting pebble beach.
The walk is a bit strenuous - although there were many over 60s making the effort.
A remark on the board-walk - it has been constructed from recycled plastic. This is much bouncier than wood, and most boards are bowed - perhaps more joists should have been used.I can imagine that it is slippery when wet as well (there are warnings).
Notes: 1. There is no fee to visit the bridge, but there is a park entrance fee. 2. Make sure to be on the lookout for the rock dassies.

“Very much worth a visit.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Spent a lovely morning down by Storms River, could'nt do too much walking with having two new knees as there was too many uneven surface and steps, but did'nt stop me enjoying the beauty of the place and did the next best hing, took an half an hour boat ride down the gorge, which was stunning. The skipper of the small craft was great and very very informative and it was so lovely seeing people in canoes down the gorge, and the bat cave was awesome. It was a beautiful sunny day and was a joy watching the children on beach and splashing about in the sea. We sat in the cafe and had a lovely coffee and watched the people walking over the Suspension Bridge, it was a super morning.

“A different Perspective”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This attraction has been made more accessable through the infrastructure that was created to enable everyone, young or old, to be able to enjoy this very special sight. With not one, but three suspension bridges, tourist are able to enjoy the beauty where the Storms River flows into the Indian Ocean. The surrounding nature is beautiful and certainly worth the approximate one kilometer walk.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Easy and nice hike, ok for kids as well. Takes about an hour back and forth. The trail is paved all the way, so it's ok even if it is raining.
