Cataract Gorge Reserve
In 1972, a magnificent chairlift was built spanning the huge natural basin often filled by the surging waters of the South Esk River. The chairlift covers some 457 metres, with terminal buildings at the First Basin (West Launceston) end and idling station at the Cliff Grounds side (Trevallyn). The central span of 308 metres is believed to be the longest single chairlift span in the world. Seating is designed for complete safety and includes a safety bar which can be operated by either the passenger or attendant.
