About 3 hours is plenty then lunch at the excellent cafe
Depends which walk you do. There were 3 different walks. I think the short walk 30mins. The air walk was about 40 mins and the long in the swinging bridge? 1-1.30. We did the 2 short walks. There is also a cafe there.
Hope this is useful and I hope my memory serves me well Cathryn
How long is a piece of string? You can do the bare minimum in a few hours but there's plenty to keep you busy if you stay overnight
I would allow 2 - 4 hours depending on interested you find the place. WIth kids it would be more like 4. If I was here with one other person, I would've nailed it in 2.5 hours.
Good luck and enjoy.
i would say at least 4 hours
I would suggest the whole day as the drive in and out takes time too. We stayed overnight and didn't regret it. At least a few hours if you want a quick look around, but longer if you want to take photos and take time to enjoy the scenery.
Give it at least a couple of hours if you want to take in the bridges and the air-walk, the combination of which is what gives you the feel of the massive trees--the point of difference from many more classic/challenging walks in Tasmanian national parks). Most groups (especially with kids between 5 and, say, 13 who may like splashing about in the river in summer) can entertain themselves there for longer, making it more worth the effort to get there if you're day-tripping from Hobart.
To be honest the only benefits that you get there, are the swinging bridges. If it does not attract you do not waste your time going there because you can definitely go for more interesting bush walks in Tasmania.
There are three walks there that take 0.5 + 0.5 + 1 (2hours). The main airwalk is inside the fences and you cannot basically get a good view until the very end,
The swinging bridges walk is the only interesting walk, but not sure if it is worth for 29$ p.p.
In general, I do not recommend going there unless you have a kid or people with less bushwalking skills (or ability) with you. Then, it sounds like a great idea.
We did all the walks including the air walk. Using a GPS tacker we actually walked 8kms around. We spent 3 hours there, photographing everything and as you can imagine stopped quite often to make the most of the scenery.
Hour minimum... stay all day if you can! ;) enjoy.
You can do the most popular walk in 1 hour. When we were there the other swinging ones were closed cause of all the rain floods
It is easy to spend half a day here, some of the walks are long, but there are plenty of shorter options. I would imagine that an hour would be needed walking to and from and on the air walk itself, but it would be a wasted drive to only do that. The drive in is slow, so that adds to the time needed. The other walks are lovely, and the paraglide a must for adventurous kids. I would allow a whole morning. The staff said the afternoons can be very busy on a nice day; getting there early is recommended.
You would need at least 4 hours to do the lot if you didn't want to do all the walks then it would be less
