Never have I seen so many peacocks. They're everywhere. A mum and her babies politely waited for crumbs as we ate our lunch. Absolutely gorgeous. It was a crazy hot day when we were there (high 30s) so we took the chairlift across the gorge...More

We visited this garden area on a cool morning. Very quiet with only a few other families/ couples there. Premises is well maintained. The waterfalls are very soothing.

My husband and I were going to do the river cruise to this point but decided we'd walk it and we are so glad we did. The track is easy if you do the flat section and the park at the other end is delightful....More

Scary on the chair lift but beautiful and some great walks. Saw wallabies and got chased by birds. Good fun.

This was a total surprise for us. We never thought that this kind of place can be there in the middle of town. Highly recommended

A pleasant stroll from the southern end of Launceston following the gorge upstream leads one to a winding bitumen path where the vista improves as you go. While walking up the cataract gorge the sound of piper on the bag lured us on, eventually revealing...More

Agree with Kaijunjia. If you really want to hike, then Freycinet National park has plenty of varied walks for all fitness levels and great views too. The kayaking is absolutely worth it.

If you are keen to see young kangaroos ask your travel agent to look up zoos or animal reserves. Each state in Australia will have a number of options. The babies live inside a pouch on the mother Roos stomach.
