How do I get to Tasmania?

Cataract Gorge

Cataract Gorge Tasmania: reaches almost to the middle of the city of Launceston. You'll emerge from the narrow part of the gorge into an elegant Victorian park with tree rhododendrons, fern glades, a swimming pool, a chairlift, barbecues, a suspension bridge and mewing peacocks. (The chairlift is the longest single-span chairlift in the world.) Walk back to the city on the other side of the river, through bushland, and think about joining one of the whitewater rafting or rock-climbing adventures in the gorge, or go hang-gliding at nearby Trevallyn.

Both Shaz and myself did the chairlift and walke dthe gardens.
We stayed in Penny Royal the next time we went there and did the walk from the bridge to the gorge its lovely with the lights on the cliffs.
Take the Gorge river cruise to.As you go under the bridge they turn they change motors. Hybrant I am sure they call it .
