Jagged rock-faces, sprawling lawns, towering conifers, and the southern hemisphere’s longest single-span chairlift can all be found within Launceston’s Cataract Gorge. Walk around the natural basin, cross the suspension bridge, relax by the open-air swimming pool, or spot the local wildlife, including the peacocks that inhabit the area.
