Explore the sights and sounds of Launceston’s iconic Cataract Gorge

Cataract Gorge reserve is one of Launceston’s most iconic tourist attractions, located on the South Esk river just 10 minutes drive away from Hotel Grand Chancellor Launceston.

The Gorge hosts an array of free activities that are perfect for the whole family, from walking tracks through scenic bush and a swimming pool, through to the world’s longest single-span chairlift as well as a restaurant and cafe. It’s the ideal spot for the whole family to enjoy when visiting Launceston.

The southern and northern sides of the river are reachable by the Kings Bridge, which was built in 1867. The north side is the perfect spot to enjoy the many walking tracks that run through the Cliff grounds; a Victorian style garden with ferns and exotic plants. 

Whether you intend to spend an hour or the whole day, there’s something for everyone.
