Walk on air as you stroll through the canopy of a native forest along the Tahune Airwalk.
This unusual 600m walk, elevated 30m above the ground, ends at a dramatic cantilevered platform that soars 50m above the Huon River with a spectacular view to the confluence of the Huon and Picton rivers.
It's a heady height at which to experience the forest, but there's plenty of family-friendly adventure at ground level, too.
Easy walks, partially wheelchair accessible, meander through the property. Follow the banks of the river and explore the ruins of the house occupied by an Irish police constable and former convict, Francis McPartlan, who was tasked with walking the trail to the remote Arthur Range to check timber licences in the 1870s. Walks lead to a stand of prized Huon pines in their natural riverine environment and to a pair of swinging bridges that cross the Huon and Picton rivers. Standing over the rivers’ fast-flowing waters is exhilarating.
Those who want to spread their wings can strap into the Eagle Hang Glider, a zipline hang-gliding experience that begins 50m above the forest floor and then flies 400 thrilling metres across the river.
If you prefer the water to the sky, join a 4hr rafting trip that takes in rapids, gently flowing waters and guided interpretation of the environment.
