Visitors glide across the treetops in this award winning and unique forest canopy tour, gaining a bird’s-eye view of Tasmania’s beautiful forests.
This fantastic adventure lasts three hours, and is unlike any other Australian nature experience!
The canopy tour combines the tranquillity of the forest with the adrenalin of gliding above and through a beautiful natural environment. Guests have a unique view of the forest from above, will see the trees and forest ecology in a new light, and learn about our growing and vibrant Tasmanian forests.
Gliding along wires and attached by harnesses, thrill-seekers are led by knowledgeable and highly-trained guides through the treetops and above the Pipers River. The journey includes cable spans of between 15 metres and 400 metres, connected between tree platforms called ‘cloud stations’. The cloud stations are constructed around the trunks of large trees, within the mid canopy level of the forest – typically at heights up to 23 m above the forest floor.
Tour Times: Morning/Afternoon/Twilight/Night – depending on season
