www.launcestoncataractgorge.com.au . The Cataract Gorge is THE ICONIC FOCUS OF LAUNCESTON. If you haven't been here, you have not been to Launceston! A legend from Launceston's first settlement, it is steeped in History. There is dual Vehicle Access and Parking, either side of the Basin. Picnic areas, children's playground, all ages swimming pool, cafes, One of our Best Restaurants, the Suspension Bridge, Chairlift and beautifull grounds, with wildlife, to explore. Make it a simple visit or explore more. The following Walking Map can also be done by car as there is ample parking at each point along the way. Any point on the map can be visited individually.
