Walk Description      

A nice short walk on a well contoured track which was opened in early 2018


The reserve is 122 hectares and was donated to the state by local farmers, Max and Bev Thomas, for the protection of endangered species. Randalls Bay Landcare built a track which opened in 2018 and climbs quite gently most of the way by following the contours of the area. It does result in being about 300 metres distance from the top near the start but by the halfway mark you are 700 metres away.  A pond with a well constructed platform is passed on the way.

This version of the walk is 6.3k and takes 1 ¾ hours of walking.

The walk described can be slightly shortened by starting at the other end of the beach at a carpark along williams Road before tit climbs uphill.
It takes about 1:15 to drive from Hobart if going via Huonville and slightly less via Snug and Nicholls Road.
