Experience the rugged beauty of Tasmania by taking a long stroll across Alexandra Suspension Bridge. Spanning over a river gorge, the bridge slightly sways as you move along, which may be unpleasant for travelers with the fear of height. Bring your camera to capture the views. Consider combining this walk with some of the other hikes along the riverside. You can also take a chair lift across the park, and then walk back using the suspension bridge.

  • Enjoyed walking over this historical bridge during our time at Cataract Gorge, there was little movement and gave you a strange feeling, took some amazing photos and certainly enjoyed our time here

  • I think no one can miss this stunning place when visiting Launceston. This park is great for mini-bush walking. Surprisingly this park has a chairlift to bring you up across the basin. You can feel the power of nature when standing in the middle of the suspension bridge and look to the South Esk River. No long away from the suspension bridge, there are beautiful gardens and a cafe that you can even meet up local residents - peacocks walking around you. Of course it depends whether you are luck enough to meet them.
  • A short suspension bridge that allows you to view the gorge from a unique perspective.
