Waddamanna Tour

Walk to this magnificent view - Cataract Gorge, Launceston

 The Waddamanna Tour is a full day (approximately 6 hours) experience that starts at the entrance to the iconic Cataract Gorge at King's Bridge. From there it winds its way along the Gorge Track and through the magnificent Cliff Grounds with the colourful and raucous peacocks. You will ascend into the Trevallyn Reserve along the Snake Gully Creek Track and here starts your journey into Aboriginal Tasmanian History.

 Geoff will show you traditional bush foods and resources as you make your way through the forest and past ancient Aboriginal places. The next phase of the tour takes in stunning views of the South Esk River and a stop for a BBQ lunch* featuring wallaby and kangaroo products. That is followed by  a session where you can make your own mementos of either clap sticks or a painting using traditional ochres and pigments.

After that you will venture down to Duck Reach, in the Gorge itself, to the old power station museum before meandering back to the First Basin area. 

Parking is available in the Margaret Street carpark that is 2 minutes’ walk from the starting point at the King's Bridge entrance to the Gorge Track. 

* Specific dietary needs cannot be catered to.  People requiring  specific dietary needs will have to provide their own lunch. It is also recommended that each guest provide their own snacks or alternative foods should they not find the offerings to their 'tastes'.
