Waterway wanderings

Explore the estuary and beyond.

Along the edge of kanamaluka/Tamar River and the North Esk River are various, distinctive experiences for the whole family to discover and learn from - all accessible along flat paths and in one day.

Begin at Queen Victoria Museum where you'll learn about the intricate and unique biodiversity of what lies beneath the surface of these internationally-significant waterways.

Next stop is discovering more than a century of mechanical knowledge at the National Automobile Museum then onto Peppers Silos for a fresh-baked snack followed by bursts of energy at the adjacent Riverbend Park playground. This incredible facility offers space for all ages and abilities and connects to the stretch of restaurants including Mud Bar and Levee Food Co at Seaport Precinct.

The Seaport Boardwalk winds along the banks of kanamaluka, which you can enjoy from different perspectives on a Tamar River Cruise or by ascending the famed zig-zag track. Another playground, fish'n'chips or the acclaimed eatery Stillwater are further attractions to be savoured along the way to the Cataract Gorge, an unparalleled natural attraction and sacred meeting place for Tasmanian Aboriginal communities for tens of thousands of years.

An exceptional day out in Launnie.
