An experience for any season at The Gorge Scenic Chairlift!

The Gorge Scenic Chairlift is one of the most popular attractions in Launceston. Just a few minutes drive from the city, with plenty of parking, and you can enjoy the sights and sounds of this natural wonder.

The chairlift is the longest single span chairlift in the world, and is a gentle and relaxing ride that takes you through the tree canopies and across the river. You can return via the chairlift, or take one of the many gentle walking paths - each offering different scenery, from lookouts across the landscape, to a range of interesting birdlife and local wallabies.

An enjoyable experience for all ages, the chairlift can accommodate most accessibility needs, with staff trained to make sure everyone has a safe and fun ride. The Cataract Gorge also boasts plenty of other facilities including a playground, swimming pool, toilets, cafe and restaurant.

There’s no need to book, chairs leave every 60 seconds, so simply visit the ticket booth when you are ready to ride. Open every day of the year, and suitable for all seasons and weather conditions, the Gorge Scenic Chairlift is truly an iconic adventure, and a must-do while you’re in Tasmania!

Open 9am daily, closing times vary per season.
