Launceston

Tasmania’s second city, Launceston, stands near Cataract Gorge, a dramatic set of rapids best viewed from a suspension bridge built in 1904. A hundred years before the bridge, William Collins, first European explorer to reach the site, described the scene: “… a huge fall of water over rocks, nearly a quarter of a mile up a straight gully between perpendicular rocks about 150 feet high. The beauty of the scene is probably not surpassed in the world.” The falls are now surrounded by a reserve, with walking trails and fine Victorian gardens.
