If you’re in Launceston, then Cataract Gorge is a must. Stunning scenery and very accessible. It’s only a 20 min walk to Alexandra Bridge and back, where you can see the best of the Gorge.

We enjoyed a brisk walk on Sunday watching a lot of water cascading at the gorge. Part of the lower pathway was closed owning to flooding.

Great walk can do many different tracks, with the duck trail the longest of 10km. Also a cafe & chair lift as well. Definitely worth the visit!
