The Tahune Airwalk is a unique stroll amongst the tree tops, located deep within the forests of southern Tasmania. The area has a long history of forestry and logging back to the early settlers and convicts.

The metal walkway is twenty metres above the forest floor, linked by platforms. The final section is a cantilever, balancing over forty metres above the Huon River. The views are stunning, both looking out and looking directly down.

I’ll let the photos do the talking.

For someone who doesn’t like walking on piers, open stairs or boardwalks, this was not too scary.

The swing bridges were worse, especially when kids jumped and rocked the bridges on purpose. I didn’t dare stop in the middle to take photos, I was too worried about dropping my iPhone.

The guys in our group experienced the hang glider. A four hundred long zip wire ride over the river. I wimped out and just watched.

It was a lovely day, with other walks alongside the river and through the huon pine forest. We took rolls and salads along with steak and burgers which we cooked on the public barbecue. Our first barbecue of spring. There was a fixed bridge over the river, where it was safe to take photos.
