Fun to walk out in the sunshine and feel the sway of the bridge. Take some lovely photos of the gorge in both directions then enjoy a walk in the gardens.

This an amazing suspension bridge with an amazing view. Well worth the visit. The tracks are clearly marked and well maintained. It is so close to the city but it feels like you could be in the wilderness.

We walked over this bridge to get to see the views down the gorge. It is an easy walk from the cafe back to the car park

The bridge that takes you to the other side if you dont want to use the chairlift. A short stroll to the other side of the gorge. The bridge gives you great views left and right. Well worth a visit

This suspension bridge is smack in the middle of the Cataract Gorge Reserve and is easy to walk across. It is narrow, but 2 persons can pass each other. Walking on this bridge gives you a good view of the rapids and surroundings.

Great views overlooking the reserve at Cataract Gorge. The bridge is over 100 years old, narrow but you can really feel it move when people move over it. That's just with a couple people. Supposedly holds 60 people which could be interesting.

So glad we walked the suspension bridge. It's a safe, easy walk over the gorge & a great spot for taking photos of the stunning gorge. It's free, too.

It's fine for a 2 year old, but with close supervision. It is a long walk though. You will have to be prepared to carry your little love around a bit.
