A 10-minute wander west of the city centre is magnificent Cataract Gorge. The bushland, cliffs and ice-cold South Esk River here feel a million miles from town. At First Basin there’s a free outdoor swimming pool (November to March), the world’s longest single-span chairlift (9am to 5.30pm), summer concerts, huge European trees and sociable peacocks. Eating options include a cafe, kiosk and the sassy Gorge Restaurant . The whole shebang is impressively floodlit at night. Basin Cafe
