Completed early last century, Kings Bridge gave unrivalled access to Trevallyn and beyond. Tourists are drawn to the bridge because of its unique mechanical style and gorgeous arch, highlighted here in the morning light, by Dave Groves Photography.
Access to Launceston’s iconic Cataract Gorge is via tracks at either end of Kings Bridge’s abutments.
Centre of the image, nestled in an old quarry, and dominated by angular stone walls is the Penny Royal accommodation and behind that, Penny Royal Adventures.
There is an accessible and well maintained track on the northern edge of the river (Trevallyn side) and on the Penny Royal side, for the fit and adventurous, the aptly named “Zig Zag” track.
Both lead to open parkland and amenities at “First Basin” while giving the walker amazing views along the way.
A friend, Geoff McLean, heads Wallaby Walkabout Tours.
If time is yours, I highly recommend a tour with Geoff. Amazing stories of the gorge and new places come to light as Geoff guides you through Cataract Gorge.
