Description

Cornelian Bay will keep the whole family entertained – there’s something here for everyone!

Children will love the playground, especially climbing to the top of the ropes tower. The family dog can run, swim and make friends in the off-lead exercise area. When it is time to stretch your legs you can follow the track to Cornelian Bay Point for great views of the Derwent River, Tasman Bridge and the historic cemetery or head in the opposite direction past the quaint and quirky boatsheds and on to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. Finally, for those who just want to relax, there are plenty of spots to sit and watch the boats and birds bobbing in the bay.
