Come to the edge of a dramatic canyon with a river twisting and roaring 275 metres below - and hear nature's wild call. It's rare in the world to find a powerful place like Leven Canyon that's so easy to access. Enjoy the excitement of the canyon, only 45 minutes away from tranquil beaches and coastal parklands. The reserve, almost 2,500 ha, is a refuge for Tasmanian plants, animals and birds. Experience them on a range of fascinating walks, most of them easy. Relax in bushland surrounds while having a picnic or barbecue.

There's much to explore, so allow at least two hours on-site. Walks include Cruickshanks Lookout, Forest Stairs, Edge Lookout Track, Fern Walk and Canyon Floor Walk. Facilities include stories and information revealing the significance of the Canyon and surrounds, picnic area with barbecues, tables and picnic shelter and toilets.
