Enjoyed the views on the cliffs , the swimming pool , the chair lift between points and the walking to the powerhouse and surrounds. A good place to take some fresh air , enjoy the scenery and bush land.

Such and amazing place to see. A swimming pool within a dormant Volcanic crater. The swimming spot for all the locals. Plenty of walking trails, bird life.. Lots of lookout points. The chairlift across the Gorge is a must. Definitely worth a look 👀

Very scenic with several walks. There is a choice of cafe or restaurant for anyone wanting food and a nice chairlift ride.

It’s a decent place but I didn’t find anything spectacular about it. The cable cart, suspension bridge, look out points, a couple of trails, a swimming pool near the entry point, decent car park, all pretty simple.

Truly, it is an amazing place to be. There are simply so many things you can do! Just make sure you've given yourself enough parking time, for you can pay for parking by the minutes. You must take the chairlift. It is not too expensive,...More

A beautiful restful place for families. The lady at the ticket office was the warmest person I have ever met and welcomed our families to Tasmania.
