The Gorge is Launceston’s urban playground. The locals love it. Visitors flock to it. Peacocks have chosen it as a permanent home. But have you ever walked it, paused and understood its impact across the generations? On our Gorge Tour we delve into the past. We don’t just walk across Kings Bridge but describe how it was made on the other side of the world in 1863 and the day it was meticulously moved into place. With our special interp aids, we’ll take you there.
The Gorge is one of Tasmania’s most visited tourist attractions. It just happens to be right on the doorstep of our Stillwater home base. After our briefing, we’ll step right into this natural wonder only minutes from the CBD. Find out about the Gorge’s past and changing landscape. Ask about manmade remnants still protruding from a gorge carved some 30 million years before during the Jurassic Period.
Across three hours, find out how the Gorge was the original lifeblood of Launceston for much of the city’s early life and how today, it holds the very same importance. Learn about the most-loved picnic rocks through the years and how thousands would flock for swimming races.
We’ll then wander back to Stillwater Restaurant, Launceston’s premier dining venue, for a sumptuous lunch with your fellow guests. This is the way to experience
