Great bridge, swings as you walk on it. Beautiful views of whole gorge as you cross, the waterfalla and walking trails are great. Great for picnic lunches

Took a walk across and it’s amazing to see how it’s built. It rocks and sways but all part of the fun ! Great to watch the water flow through beneath you. Easy walk from chairlift.

Fun to walk out in the sunshine and feel the sway of the bridge. Take some lovely photos of the gorge in both directions then enjoy a walk in the gardens.

This an amazing suspension bridge with an amazing view. Well worth the visit. The tracks are clearly marked and well maintained. It is so close to the city but it feels like you could be in the wilderness.

It's fine for a 2 year old, but with close supervision. It is a long walk though. You will have to be prepared to carry your little love around a bit.
