The centrepiece of our tourism venture, the Cable Car presents the most energy-efficient, respectful and exciting mode of accessible transport to reach the top.
A JOURNEY OF TWO
Our Proposal offers a one-of-a-kind experience in the Southern Hemisphere. Beginning at the industrial historic Cascade Brewery, passengers are lifted across the Hobart Rivulet and a lush forest canopy towards Golden Gully Park; a tranquil grove in the foothills with a range of adventures to explore.
Passengers with a full-return pass can there hop onto a second system for an extraordinary journey of spectacular scenery and atmosphere; offering a silent, awe-inspiring ascension to the summit.
Entirely located on private land, the first section of your journey begins at Cascade. Twenty 8-seater Gondolas will ferry visitors 1km into the foothills to our proposed mid-station park.
From the mid-station to the pinnacle, a spectacular Aerial Tramway is proposed to traverse 3.5km across Wellington Park, consisting of 2 spacious cabins with just 2 support pylons.
Continually running like escalators, gondolas help eliminate queues on even our busiest projected days. These systems slow to a crawl within the terminal and offer seamless flush-floor loading for bikes, prams and wheelchairs.
Each Gondola will feature an audio tour available in a variety of languages, providing an interpretative story-telling experience of the Hobart Rivulet's early history and the ruthless Brewery founder Peter Degraves who tried to monopolise its supply.
Specialised gondolas will feature easy-clean floors for muddy mountain bikes, whilst premium cabins with luxury seating and full-glass floors will offer the more daring visitor a memorable, 'floating above the canopy' experience. Candle-lit dinners for two can also be arranged on special occasions, such as Valentine's day.
See how gondolas provide a unique perspective in Europe:
Counterbalanced and synchronised, one tram arrives at the summit as the other returns to the mid-station. Offering the most energy-efficient way to scale height, the weight of the descending tram helps pulls the ascending one up.
Each Skytram is staffed by a Cabin Master, who, as tour guide have the important role of ensuring visitors feel welcome and leave knowing just a little more of the mountain's story. and will be fully-trained in first-aid and security.
Spacious enough for school and tour groups, weddings and special events, these custom-designed cabins feature an outdoor balcony that always faces the city views, a glass-bottomed floor and wrap-around floor-to-ceiling glazing to truly create a memorable, family-friendly experience for visitors of all ages and ability.
