Sited on top of a small hill in Austins Ferry adjacent to Roseneath Rivulet, Poimena Reserve offers commanding views of the Derwent River to the east and kunanyi / Mount Wellington to the West. The reserve offers a diverse walking experience through a mix of native white gum, peppermint and blue gum woodland and managed parkland.

The reserve is designated Land for Wildlife and supports a range of fauna including native marsupials such as bandicoots as well as over 72 native bird species. A number of rare beetles and herbaceous plants also inhabit the reserve. For this reason dogs are prohibited in the lower half of the reserve and must be kept on lead and on the desiganated trails in the upper half of the reserve. Please contact the Glenorchy City Council for details of dog exercise areas within the reserve.
