Such a beautiful place! So close to town but quiet and still. A perfect walk to enjoy the nature and regain energy. Several bridges to cross the gorge making it possible to go around instead of turning around.

74-90 Basin Rd, Launceston, TAS 7250

Hiking Area, Walking Track, Picnic Area, Trails, Lookouts & Picnic Facilities

Great place to visit, scenery glorious - Inclinator Track stays up along the ridge above First Basin, providing an overview of this wide area between narrow stretches of Cataract Gorge
This is part of Cataract Gorge. If you're not a seasoned walker or wearing appropriate clothing do not go. Bring water. With that out of the way its a really good walk and can be steep at times. I wasn't prepared and as a result I don't have pics of the view. The café at the end is really good to stop by and rest at.

Since 1983

Hiking Trails, Walking Track, Running, Walk, Bike Ride & Dog Walking

They contains approximately 120ha of remnant native vegetation - This type of reservation ensured that the natural values of the reserve are conserved whilst still providing opportunities for public recreation and education
Great place to ride if after a quick spin in the bush close to town. Does have some technical sections on the tracks with a alternate route if you are not a confident rider so the tracks cater for all skill levels.
