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.

  • Spent a few hours here enjoying the walks and taking in the beautiful bush scenery. Don't miss it if you are in Launceston.

  • What a beautiful place so close to town. Something for everyone here and the most beautiful pool I have seen. An easy walk or a hard walk, a chairlift across, peacocks and English gardens. Gorgeous

  • 5 of us visited from Sydney. Entry is free unless u ride the chairlift. However the ride is recommended. Its a stunning area with cafes, BBQ huts, walks, two pools and natural gardens with Peacocks. Allow at least half a day in this stunning oasis. Perfect for families. Its clean, well maintained with staff who r friendly, kind and jovial.
  • Very nice park! Nice to bring a sandwich and sit on the grass if you can find a spot without the native dumps on the lawn. Very nice loop walk that will leave you feeling refreshed. Highly recommend doing this. Last time I came the pool was so nice and blue but this time is muddy due to flooding. It would be nice if they cleaned up the pool here.
