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.


This is a commercial operation run by Forestry Tasmania, so fees apply.

Other References/Comments:

There is the opportunity to stay here in a unique location or to take the 'Eagle Hang Glider' down and across the Huon River.


There is evidence of recovery after the bush-fires, but I'm guessing the area looks very different from what it did before hand! The suspension bridge across the Huon River has been replaced and the full circuit took 1.5hr for 5.5km (including photo stops).

Beautiful surrounds, great views.

Easy walk through the different forests. Great views of the river and information dotted throughout the walk. Recommend going, a little out of the way but beautiful scenery.

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!
