Cataract Gorge Launceston - TAS Landmarks

Landmark: Cataract Gorge
Address: Basin Road, West Launceston, 7250, TAS

Just a short 15 minute walk from Launceston's city centre, along the banks of the Tamar River and into 'The Gorge', visitors will arrive at one of Launceston's most outstanding natural features, Cataract Gorge. Jump aboard the world's longest single span chairlift where you will get a birds eye view of the massive natural basin, brimming with the rushing waters of the South Esk River. Take a self guided walk along nature trails on both sides of the gorge. The basin on the southern side has a swimming pool surrounded by bushland and is a highlight for visitors and locals.

Roam across King's Bridge with the Tamar River below, stroll the beautiful lawns of charming parkland complete with peacock's and European trees. Relax in front of a crackling log fire in winter or alfresco style in the warmer months at The Gorge Restaurant, presenting Tasmania's finest produce high up on the steep, rugged cliffs to the north of the gorge. As if the gorge is not spectacular enough throughout the day it comes to life as the sun goes down when the stunning gorge is lit up at night.
