Starting from the car park on Domain Highway, Queens Domain, this walk explores the foreshore of Cornelian Bay and takes you to Gas Road via multiple scenic tracks. This is a great little waterside journey where people (and pets) of all ages can find something fun to do. Starting off with your four-legged friend: There's an off-leash area along the track where your doggo can run and swim freely. Children can have some fun and exercise at the playground along the track. For the adults of the family, great views of the bay and a chance to do some cardio await. Also, the Cornelian Bay Cemetery at the end is home to the historic Derwent Chapel. This place is known for being Tasmania's first crematorium site. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
