Starting from Tahune Adventures at the end of Arve Road, Geeveston, this walk takes you along the Tahune AirWalk, a wheelchair-friendly metal structure that presents you the lovely forests and landscape in quite the panoramic way. The 50-metre high viewing platform lets you view the surrounding peaks and the beauty of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The AirWalk is pretty safe and solid as every part of it is fenced, and the structural integrity is technically able to withstand cyclones. There are two ways to get to the said platform. One is the longer but more gradual path that is wheelchair-friendly, and the other is a shorter but steeper path that involves 112 steps. Dogs are welcome here, considering they're on a leash. There is also a cafe and gas BBQs at the visitor centre. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
