Smooth & flat
Starting from Tahune Adventures at the end of Arve Road, Geeveston, this walk takes you along an exceptional boardwalk through a majestic Huon pine forest. Take your time and admire the serene natural environment around you as you meander along the river. This boardwalk is wheelchair and pram friendly. Additionally, you can take your dog with you (needs to be on a leash). This walk is included if you bought the ticket for Tahune Airwalk. Keep in mind that the facility closes down at 4 PM, and the last tickets of the day can be bought at 3 PM. You don't need a ticket for children under 5. 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.
