Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was a feta and fun afternoon for the family. Easily spent a couple of hours here enjoying history through amusement and attraction rides. Best to check out the website first and book the activities you’d like to do just in case they book out on the day

Located at the end of Cataract Gorge, it makes a convenient turn around point when walking. Admission charges apply and a range of paid activities are available inside as well as a couple of cafe options. Looks neat - probably a hit with children.

My wife and son did the zip lining which they both immensely enjoyed. We also did the panning for gold and the convict boat experience. Although these experiences were enjoyable we didn’t feel that they were as good of value for money when compared to the zip lining experience.

Thank you for adventuring with us, David. Glad you enjoyed our zip lining! We do try to keep the pricing reasonable at $10 for our Brig Tamar experience with our Captain and $10 for our gold panning. We are a bit hamstrung there as the experience is a bit reduced without pans (which we were required to remove by WorkSafe). Sorry it didn't measure up for you!

I’ve been to Penny Royal over the years a couple of times but not for a while so it was nice to return to experience something different in addition to the dark boat ride that always a favourite of mine.

The dark ride takes about 15 minutes round trip under Penny Royal Adventures and shows some of the convict history highlights of Tasmanias past including holograms, waterfalls & sound and lights.

After this we did something I’ve never done there - cliff walking with harness and wires. What a view. From the top you can see all over Launceston and we were blessed with a gorgeous sunny winter’s afternoon. The total walk around took us about 20 minutes and some parts you had to walk right over a suspension bridge high above the park and it was exhilarating and I would definitely do it again when I’m back in Launceston as I’ve been to Tasmania many a time over the years.

It’s also very reasonably priced and the staff take you through all the required safet precautions and hints and we felt extremely safe and secure from the top.

Great afternoon spent here on Saturday with my daughter. The staff were amazing, so friendly, knowledgeable and professional, thank you Monty, Hayley and crew (I’m sorry I can’t remember all your names particularly the young lady who helped me jump off the cliff you were so good with me and another nervous girl at the zip line that day it was so lovely to see. I think you mentioned you are also a school teacher, I bet the kids love you) I honestly could not speak highly enough of all the staff, they really added to the enjoyment of the day.
We zip lined, rock climbed, jumped off the cliff, and then walked around it. All a lot of fun and the views over Launceston on that gorgeous sunny day were just beautiful. I think our highlight was the rock climbing and my daughter actually asked to go back the next day. It will be on the list for next visit.

I also would like to mention how spotless and well kept the whole area is. It’s a beautiful environment and nice to see it maintained so well.
Overall a wonderful family activity that I would recommend.
