Tasmanian tourist attraction Tahune Airwalk, located in the Southern Tasmanian forest, has changed hands for an undisclosed sum.

Established in 2001, Tahune Airwalk has a 600 metre walkway and cantilever suspended above the forest canopy – additionally there are two swinging bridges, an Eagle Hang Glider Ride across the Huon River, a licensed cafe and visitor centre, eight accommodation rooms, function centre, walks, picnic and barbecue areas.

It is one of Australia’s leading tourist attractions with over 74,000 visitors per year.

The property earns more than $2.2 million pa. According to a report in The Mercury, tourism veteran Ken Stronach bought Tahune Airwalk from Forestry Tasmania in December for an undisclosed sum. 

Stronach has 35 years experience in the tourism industry and is on the board of Destination Southern Tasmania.

He has managed the Tahune AirWalk for three years and has a long history of developing and operating hotels in Tasmania and interstate, the report said. 

The selling agents were Ian Reed and Scott Newton of Knight Frank.
