The Gorge - Bouldering




All Bouldering in the Gorge


The Basin Carpark is located on the West Launceston (South) side of the Gorge. From the carpark you'll pass through the gate and then by the chairlift. Head left along the track to the suspension bridge. The climbing is described in a clockwise fashion as you would come to it walking along the track.

Access issues

Especially with all bouldering located on the main tracks, please be very courteous to walkers. It is your responsibility to move pads out of the way of all walkers and passers by, do not ask walkers to step over your pads. Access to bouldering in the gorge is a privilege so please treat it as such and represent the climbing community in a positive and friendly way.


For most bouldering spots in the Gorge it is favourable to park at the Basin car park. From the basin car park you'll pass through the gate and downhill past the chairlift.

Ethic inherited from Tasmania

  • The operation and use of drones by park visitors on reserved land including national parks is not permitted​.

  • Please note that Tasmania has notoriously patchy phone reception for particular service providers. Telstra is the most reliable. An emergency Personal Locator Beacon or similar is recommended kit when climbing in remote locations.
