Description

A great family walk or ride close to the Derwent River with plenty of places to stop and explore along the way.

From the Cenotaph the cycleway follows the Derwent River upstream, passing under the Tasman Bridge and close by the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. Further on, the playground at Cornelian Bay is just a short side trip away and an excellent spot for a snack or picnic. The cycleway then leaves the river edge and soon reaches New Town Rivulet from where keen riders can continue on to MONA and Claremont.
