Great view

There is only a short walk to get to such a beautiful outlook, could have been anywhere in the world. Suitable for most levels of fitness

This is one of the most attraction that you need to see when you're in Tasmania.It's also very good exercise to walk and climb in the beautiful and healthy nature surrounding by forest and the result is very beautiful view of the canyon.Very breathtaking.

A slightly uphill walk to get there, but well worth the effort. A few rest points on the way if you're not super fit. Awesome view once you reach the lookout. Good clean facilities at start of walk. A "Must Do" when in Tassie.

I was very impressed with this canyon. We did all the 697 steps and every step was worth the views. It's a circuit walk with a side trip to Cruickshank lookout. A little further up the road there is another carpark for the Canyon floor walk. I did this one too and loved it. Be careful near the end as... More

Been a while since I have been here, and you take for granted Tasmania's beautiful scenery. The walks take you through rainforest to lookouts where the immense power of nature shows through. A definite recommendation for a 1/2 day adventure.

A short sloping uphill walk from the parking takes you to a metal bridge at Cruikshanks Lookout for this amazing canyon view which you wouldn't believe was here as the river soon opens out again. From here you can either return to the carpark or walk down the 697 forest stairs to the walk to the lower lookout. We walked... More

500 meter walk from car park to spectacular scenery of the canyon - the large ferns on the walk in are also great.

Worth the drive and negotiating the extremely confusing road system in this part of Tasmania. There is a short walk to a fantastic lookout with jaw dropping view over the canyon. Not to be missed.
