Route/Trail notes:

Cross the bridge from the Visitor Centre and note the levels the water reached in various floods. Take a self or guided tour up through the canopy to the cantilever viewing platform. Return to the cafe for a spot of lunch and then recross the bridge and turn right to follow the Huon Pine Trail.

The time taken (2hr) is reflective of the many stops to enjoy the views, Take photos and read the interpretive signs.

Comments

Tasmania is a fascinating place, with so many places to wonder at and get lost in. This second trip has ticked a few more boxes, but leaves a whole lot more to explore. Tahune Airwalk, whilst commercial, provides you with a history lesson on how the area has changed in just 200 hundred years, but leaves a legacy of the previous 1,000s if not 100,000's. If I remember, this area was covered by a glacier less than 10,000 years ago!
