Starting in the Fernglade Reserve on Fernglade Road, Burnie, this walk takes you on a short stroll along the Emu River via the Fernglade Walk track. Containing almost 150 species of ferns displayed along meandering paths, Fern Glade is a quiet riverside oasis close to the city centre of Burnie. A waterfall, pond and belvedere add to the enjoyment of this walk. The reserve has an abundance of bird life, and if you are lucky you may see a platypus surfacing in the river. The path is punctuated with informative signs and guidelines, and the reserve offers barbecue, picnic and toilet facilities. Please note that dogs aren't permitted in the reserve. 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.
