About
A scenic 90-minute drive south from Hobart, one of southern Tasmania’s must-see attractions. You can walk high above the forest canopy and share the lives of the forest giants from up-close, looking down to the place where the wild waters of the Huon and Picton Rivers mingle. The 600-metre walkway ends at a spectacular cantilevered platform 50 metres above the riverbank, with views extending to the mountains of the World Heritage Area. Further into the forest follow the trail to the 2 swinging bridges or enjoy a peaceful walk along the Huon river, get up close to see young and mature Huon pines growing in their natural riverine rainforest environment. Expolore paddling, drifting and splashing on a raft or kayak through bouncy rapids and quiet stretches of the Picton and Huon River. Enjoy local Tasmanian produce in the cafe. Can't fit it all in one day stay overnight in the lodge, cabin or camp in your motor home. Opening times: October to March 9am – 5pm April to September 10am – 4pm
Duration: 2-3 hours

    Breathtaking views
    This experience was part of a cruise day trip and what a fantastic experience. The airwalk is very sturdy and the sights and aroma of the rain forest will stay with me. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the tour size more than well managed. We were cautioned that the visitor center cafe was great but that hot foid should be avoided (small staff and it would take too long). My sandwich was very tasty and fresh when pulled from the prepared case. We were told this was the first year for this option to be open for cruise ship day excursions. This one was exceptionally well run and I very much recommend it.

    Get out and about
    It is a great day trip. Wonderfully invigorating fresh air. It was Interesting to see how the forest is growing back after the fires. The mottled bark. The new greenery and the remarkable ferns lining the road. We took it easy and made sure we just enjoyed the drive. The vistors center and restaurant was warm (fire place was on) and Welcoming. good things to look at. The wall hanging by the front doors was really a lovely piece of art. Beautifully made. I'm scared of heights so that made it exciting lol but I made it. Had some good conversation with people along the walk. That's a treat. At the end of the tree top walk we walk back through the forest. Really nice 👌 so quiet and cool. I'm sure if you are serious walkers or nature enthusiasts this would be tame for you but for the average folk it's a lovely place to visit. My only small grip was lunch. We had nachos and it was not tasty at all. No beans, just salsa and cheese. Bland and tasteless. Not worth it for the price. Overall, we are glad we did this day trip.

    Great Experience
    A great experience. It was not as good as it could have been with the 2019 Bushfire taking away from a lot of the preserved forest here previously. It was nice to read about the bushfire and see the impacts it had. Still a very good trip and very worthwhile. The twin bridges and the air-walk are incredible and would definitely recommend anyone to check it out. It was a bit of a drive and there is no phone reception (they do have free wifi).

    The wonders of the bush
    Loved our visit today. Got there early for opening time. First visitors to go on the Airwalk and then onto the swinging bridges walk. Wonderful views. Then we did the Huon River walk to complete our trip. The drive up needs to be taken carefully. Friendly staff. Clean amenities. A great half day or more out. If travelling on the Spirit of Tasmania look out for the brochure with a 10% discount sticker. The bush is recovering from the dreadful 2019 bushfires.

    Tahune Airwalk
    This place is incredible. Don’t be dismayed by the drive, slow and winding, it is well worth it. This was the highlight of my trip. Amazing cafe, best Scones ever!!! The Airwalk is great - for me walking the swinging bridge trail (short walk) was breathtaking. Thanks to all the helpful staff there. Great gift shop too. Do this one for sure 👍

    Beautiful quiet relaxing place to take a stroll in nature
    We saw the sign for this during our roadtrip to cockle beach and decided we would stop in here on our way back. There is a lot of damage from the bushfires but it’s still beautiful to see none the less. At the very least it’s a beautiful stroll in nature looking out for what animals you might be lucky enough to see. We were there after a big storm so the river alone was amazing to listen to and walk beside . We did the airwalk and the swinging bridge walk.

If you are wondering whether to make the journey from Hobart - I wouldn't recommend it. It is a long way to go, along incredibly narrow, steep and winding roads, for very little reward at the end. Yes, it was a pleasant walk through the national park, but that was all it was - a pleasant walk through the park. The 'Adventure' was definitely missing.

I note that some people said it wasn’t as good as it was before the bushfires, I can’t compare. We thought it was beautiful and I think it is important for people to see the devastation caused by bushfires. The whole family enjoyed the walks and the boys enjoyed the “hang glider” which is really a flying fox /zip line. It was a long drive out there, but an enjoyable morning.

We took an overseas visitor here and she loved it. We did the airwalk itself and the other walks. It is worth doing all of them especially the Huon Pine walk. Expensive entry but worth it.

The trees are not what is advertised due to the 2019 bushfires. We were here 20 years ago and the tree walk was amazing to see all of the tall trees. These are now dead burnt or fallen. It will take many many years to make this attraction really worth seeing.

Great outdoor adventure for the whole family. We did the Air Walk and the 2 suspension bridge walks as we got there late afternoon. Definitely recommend it if you like outdoor walks and adventure.

Very sad to see the devastation wrought by the bushfires and high winds but the regrowth is regenerating. Be careful on the drive in and out as the road is very windy with deep culverts, not to mention logging trucks. The centre has clean toilets, a shop and a restaurant/cafe. The actual walk entails walking up quite a steep set of steps before embarking on the elevated platform. You then exit and walk back to base. Glad I did it at 76 as I don’t like heights, but one only lives once!
