Travel Tips for Launceston

Cataract Gorge, Launceston

by Kate-Me

Cataract Gorge has walking and hiking tracks through bushland, lookouts, swimming pool, suspension bridge, gardens, cafe and restaurant and also the longest single span cheerlift in the world, with very stunning views of the gorge.

It's very green and pretty and an ideal place to wander and have a picnic

CATARACT GORGE

by balhannah

This is what they call "Launceston's own piece of wilderness!"

We have done a few things here, one of them is following the pathway (built in 1890) along the cliff face, beside the South Esk River, another time, we caught the chairlift........an excellent way to view the Gorge.
Fares in 2010... $12 adult one way....$15 return
OPEN.....From 9am till 4.30pm winter....5pm..spring & autumn
and.......5.30pm or 6 pm in summer.

The First Basin, on the southern side, features a swimming pool and an open area surrounded by bushland and the north side is the Cliff Grounds, a Victorian garden where ferns and exotic plants are growing. There's a Restaurant and kiosk, lawns and a rotunda, a pub with a view, a footbridge and chairlift across the river, peacocks, and wallabies at dusk.

Further upstream is the historic Duck Reach Power Station, now an Interpretation Centre.

It is located only about 5mins from Launceston city centre.
