We went here on advice from others and were not disappointed. It’s a quick drive from Ulverstone and a short walk to the lookout. Brilliant. You have nothing to lose. There are also toilets close to the car park.

We did the upper walk to the platform, approximately 25min. Amazing views and easy walk. Drove 1.km down road to lower river walk. More challenging but beautiful used another camera and will try to post of canyon itself.

Thank you to those who had the foresight to save this picnic and walking area as a reserve in the midst of logging areas. Relaxing walk to lookout with seats along the way. Stairway and steeper walk for the more energetic. Great spot for lunch.

A bit out of the way, but a lovely picnic area that leads off to some walks. We went up the hill to the lookout, which was quite spectacular - it's a long way down!

The car park has good facilities, toilets, bbq, benches. Food information boards. We walked to the top lookout first then down the steps to the bottom one. The top one is the best if you haven’t got much time. It’s a steep walk up from...More

The somewhat windy drive is good in itself but the canyaon, its views of this magnificent part of Tasmania are stunning. Walking track is beautifully done, plenty of room in carpark toilets, huts for having some lunch in. etc.

You leave the coast and drive through farmland which gives way to native and plantation forests. The ferns on the roadside and lichen on the fences give a good indication of the weather, as, for much of the year it can be wet and cold....More
