Hollybank Treetops Adventure

Treetops Adventure Tours

Visitors glide across the treetops in this unique forest canopy tour, gaining a bird’s eye view of Tasmania's beautiful forests. This 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 attached by harnesses, thrill-seekers are led by two knowledgeable and highly-trained guides through the treetops and above the Pipers River. The journey includes cable spans 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 experience.
