In a region characterized by natural beauty, Cataract Gorge Reserve sits as one of Tasmania's most magnificent features. The South Esk River carved the gorge and left behind a verdant landscape. Ride the world's longest single-span chairlift, which stretches a total of 457 m (1,499 ft) and features one span with a length of 308 m (1,010 ft). Walk around the colorful and immaculately landscaped gardens, admire majestic peacocks, or swim in the pool beneath the bright South Australian sun. The Gorge Restaurant and Basin Cafe both serve fresh fare.

Absolutely lovely gardens , gorgeous walks on a nice day , pack your sneakers , great coffee shops , souvenirs disappointing though, great sky lift more »
What an amazing landmark. Could spend so much more time here, beautiful gardens and play equipment for children. The walks were easily down and the paths not as hard as you think. The chair life staff are super friendly and have so much information to share. It's a little surprising where it is located, it's right in the centre of town. Tip : pack a towel ! The pool looked amazing but we were prepared!
Beautiful and peaceful spot right near the city. Really enjoyed going for a walk around their track, seeing the wildlife (especially the peacock!) and lounging on their expansive grassy area. The swimming pool looks pretty awesome too. Something for everyone! 😍
