The world-famous Cataract Gorge 

Launceston's own piece of wilderness is just a 15-minute walk from the city centre.  Here you'll find walking and hiking trails, the world's longest single span chairlift, a swimming pool, restaurant, kiosk, cafe, peacocks and wildlife, beautiful gardens, a suspension bridge, an inclinator for easy access, the Interpretation Centre and panoramic lookouts with spectacular views.

Makes for a great day trip with the whole family or take your partner for a romantic walk around the gorge and finish off with a bite to eat at the cafe. 

Tamer River Cruises 

Tamar River Cruises has been family owned and located at Launceston's Home Point since 1996. The Lady Launceston has shared the unique cruising experience of the Launceston waterfront and the majestic Cataract Gorge with thousands of guests and there truly is no better way to experience one of Tasmania's most popular attractions. Our cruises depart hourly from our Home Point cruise terminal - only a short walk or taxi from Launceston's CBD or the Mews Motel.

"We take pride in maintaining the Lady Launceston to immaculate standards and selecting experienced, professional and friendly crew. Our catering options for private functions incorporate renowned Tasmanian fresh produce and our wine selection showcases some of the Tamar Valleys best."
