Dramatic and inspiring
Come to the edge of a 250 m ravine that's part of a wildlife corridor from the coast to Cradle Mountain. The views from the lookout above the canyon are inspiring. The ground shakes at the base when the Leven River thunders through in flood. See just how much force mother nature's needed to carve the canyon, on a canyon floor walk.
Peaceful and easygoing
Take a peaceful forest walk in the reserve, stroll through towering manferns, or enjoy an easygoing picnic or barbecue. Leven Canyon is off Loongana Rd, about 25 minutes' drive from Ulverstone.

The little or fairy penguins can be viewed at Lillico Beach Conservation Area. The best season for viewing penguins is the breeding season which usually lasts from September to March. The Lillico Beach Conservation area has a viewing platform about 4 kms east of the Forth River off the Bass Highway.
The Friends of Lillico Penguins provide a free guiding interpretation service throughout breeding season.
The nearby town of Penguin was named after the occupants of these rookeries and it boasts the Big Penguin, one of the most photographed landmarks in Tasmania.
