We absolutely loved Cataract Gorge. The place is so beautiful and in a great location only 5 minutes from the city. We took the chairlift both ways getting off 1/2 way to go for a walk to the suspension bridge and wonder at the peacocks.

This place is stunning, endless amazing views. You can use the swimming pool or swim in the river, green grass surrounding it all. It was a very warm day but there is so much shade, easy to escape the sun. Loved the suspension bridge and chairlift, a must visit if you are in the area.

Beautiful tea house that served excellent Devonshire Teas while the peacocks entertained us and differently the children around us! The Chair lift was good value and great for photography and...

Lots to explore and entertain the kids and wear them out. Chairlift is great, even for the faint-hearted. Grabbed lunch from the take-away window (pies, sausage rolls, sandwiches etc) as main Cafe had a good menu but bit overpriced. Bring a light jacket as even on a hot day the wind can have a bit of a chill off the... More

This place is simply stunning...from the gorge to the peafowl wandering about and that chairlift...what a place. Free swimming pool in the middle. Lots of trees and flowers. Amazing! Loved it.

Only 15 minutes drive from the airport, we headed straight over there to stretch our legs post flight. Good walking tracks with rewarding views, with a public swimming pool in the middle! Suits all levels of ability.

We visited both sides of the gorge. It was great. My son and husband went on the chairlift and we drove around to meet them. We had brunch at The Basin cafe it was delicious.
