CATARACT GORGE RESERVE
The Cataract Gorge Reserve on the South Esk River is a unique natural formation just minutes from central Launceston.
The Gorge has walking tacks, swimming pool, the world’s longest single span chairlift, a restaurant, cafe, a suspension bridge and panoramic lookouts with spectacular views. Peacocks and native wildlife add to the experience.
On the southern side of the river is First Basin, featuring a swimming pool and an open area surrounded by bushland.
On the shady northern side, known as the Cliff Grounds, is a Victorian garden with ferns and exotic plants.
