Swinging Bridges and Huon Pine Walk

 Swinging Bridges Walk

P2070105.JPG

Discover early European history and experience the thrill of watching the mighty rivers…

Feel the power of nature as the mighty Huon and Picton Rivers rush right beneath your feet, on two swinging bridges suspended from the river banks.

The Huon Swinging Bridge extends over 100 metres over the Huon River. Once you’ve crossed the first bridge, take a 2 minute walk to where the mighty rivers meet and look down the river to appreciate the stunning view of the AirWalk.

The Picton Swinging Bridge extends 62 metres across the Picton River below and will take you back to solid ground to continue your adventure on the Tahune Reserve. Then view the ruins of the house occupied by Police Constable Francis McPartlan; a former Irish convict whose duty it was to walk the trail to the remote Arthur Range to check timber licenses.

Allow 1 hour to complete the Swinging Bridges loop.

Huon Pine Walk

A tranquil stroll…

Enjoy a tranquil stroll along the riverbank to the most accessible stand of Huon pines in the world.

There are plenty of informational panels to explain the importance and history of these beautiful and rare species of tree.

The boardwalk is quite narrow so unfortunately it is not suitable for wheelchairs. If you talk to our staff on site, they will direct you to the section of the track that can be accessed with a wheelchair.

Small prams or pushers/walking frames are suitable on the Huon Pine walk.

Allow 20 minutes to complete the Huon Pine Loop.

Both the Huon Pine Walk and the Swinging Bridges walk are included in the price of your general admission ticket.
