Gorgeous Walks and Talks

Aerial of Cataract


Get to know Launceston's wonderful attraction, the Cataract Gorge, by coming along to a Gorgeous Walk or Talk. 

The events are held on the first Wednesday of most months, and typically begin at the Basin Cottage. 

A team of volunteers will guide you around the Gorge grounds, introducing and explaining its special flora and fauna. Or you'll hear a presentation about the natural wonder that is the Cataract Gorge. 

It’s a fantastic education opportunity for children, but there's plenty to learn for big kids, too! 

Participants must register and a cost of approximately $4 provides light refreshments and lunch following the typically 90 minute walk or talk. 

Our volunteers also host Gorgeous Play, an event specifically designed for children and hosted the first Monday of most months. 

To register for a Gorgeous Walk or Talk, email Basin.Cottage@launceston.tas.gov.au.

Groups are limited to 25 people, so to ensure you don't miss out ask to be on the mailing list here and watch the City of Launceston Official Facebook page.
