Entertainment & Activities

Hollybank Treetops Adventure is Tasmania’s newest tourism venture. Visitors glide across the treetops in this award winning and unique forest canopy tour, gaining a bird's-eye view of Tasmania's beautiful forests. This fantastic adventure lasts 3 hours and is unlike any other Australian nature experience, and visitors will see the trees and forest ecology in a new light and learn about our growing and vibrant Tasmanian forests. Gliding along wires and attached by harnesses, thrill-seekers are led by knowledgeable and highly-trained guides through the treetops and above the Pipers River. The journey includes cable spans of between 15 metres and 400 metres, connected by tree platforms called 'cloud stations'. Following the adventure, visitors make their way back to the Visitor's Centre along a pathway of beautiful, mature trees planted early in the 20th century. Here, visitors can relax and share their experiences over a drink or snack, or move out into the grounds of the Hollybank Forest Reserve for a barbecue or picnic at one of the many facilities available on site.
