Located an easy 1 hour 30 minute drive from Hobart, you have the opportunity to feel worlds away, as you wander through the tree tops of one of Tasmania’s most accessible forests.
The ever popular feature attraction the Tahune Airwalk, consists of a 619 metre elevated walkway, 30 metres above the forest floor, with the final cantilever section sitting at a height of 50 metres above the Huon River.
Spectacular views showcasing the meeting of the mighty Huon and Picton rivers can be enjoyed. In the distance, peaks and beyond can be seen highlighting the edge of the wild southwest, Tasmanian’s Wilderness World Heritage Area.
To reach the start of the Air Walk you’ll gradually ascend 104 steps, with places to sit and rest along the way. We also offer disabled access – please enquire at the Tahune Adventures ticket office.
Basic fitness is required to complete the Air Walk. The full return journey takes about 50 minutes – more if you stop for photographs, spot bird life, or pause to enjoy the clean, fresh scents of the forest.
Air Walk tickets can be purchased online or at the Tahune Adventures visitor centre.
Ticket is a day pass and includes access to all walks on site.
Feel the power of nature as the Huon and Picton Rivers rush beneath your feet, on two swinging bridges suspended from the riverbanks.
The Huon Bridge extends over 100 metres over the Huon River. Once you’ve crossed the first bridge, take a two-minute walk to where the rivers meet and look down the river for a view of the Air Walk’s cantilever.
The Picton Swing Bridge extends 62 metres across the Picton River below and will take you back to solid ground to continue your adventure on the Tahune Reserve. Then view the ruins of the house occupied by Police Constable Francis McPartlan, a former Irish convict whose duty it was to walk the trail to the remote Arthur Range to check timber licenses.
Allow 1 hour to complete the Swinging Bridges loop.
The Swinging Bridges Walk is included in your entry ticket to the Tahune Adventures site.

A large area of Tasmania’s southern forests burnt in early 2019. It left some areas on site untouched, some completely burnt out, and some partially impacted. The AirWalk itself, and many of the giant trees surrounding it, remain unaffected.
We look forward to welcoming you to Tahune Adventures.
