Cataract Gorge Reserve
Within walking distance of the city centre, Cataract Gorge Reserve offers a variety of recreational activities. At 308 metres, the chairlift crossing the Gorge is the longest single span chairlift in the world. It takes in a bird’s eye view of the river rapids of the Gorge and crosses to the huge rhododendron trees of the Cliff Grounds on the far bank. Enjoy the walking trails, abseiling and rock climbing in the Reserve, or take a dip in the swimming pool within the Gorge’s grounds. One of Tasmania’s Great Short Walks follows riverside tracks to the old Duck Reach Power Station, which generated Tasmania’s first hydro-electricity.
