Old Beach Foreshore Trail
Starting from Jetty Road, Old Beach, this return walk takes you along the foreshore of Old Beach. This scenic journey full of birdlife is considered one of Hobart's hidden gems. From ducks to black swans on the lake, you'll have many chances to birdwatch here. Try not to focus too much on bird species and miss the panoramic views, especially of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. The jetty at the start of the track has quite a story. After completing their sentence in prison for stealing honey, James Austin and John Earle (cousins) established a ferry service in 1816, making use of this jetty. Dogs are allowed on lead. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
