The first recorded mention of Cataract Gorge is in 1804. The King’s Bridge – Catract Walk pathway runs from the entrance of the Gorge and takes you beside the river deep into the gorge to the first Basin and beyond. The walkway was built by volunteers in the 1890’s and has long been one of Launceston’s major attractions. It is unusual to find such a wilderness area so close to a city. The chairlift that crosses the Gorge at the First Basin was built in 1972 and is listed as having the longest single span chairlift in the world. In summer, Cataract Gorge is a tranquil retreat, and in winter it can flood in a most spectacular fashion after heavy rains.
