Description

Descending through the bushland past the cypress pines, to the clear blue secluded waters of Boronia Beach feels like you’ve stumbled into the Mediterranean. The historic private residence behind the beach is ‘Boronia’, which was once the Boronia Hotel (circa 1900). It was popular in the days when the old ferry docked at the jetty at Kingston Beach bringing day-trippers from Hobart. Folk would visit the hotel for a cup of tea and wander through its terraced rhododendron gardens down to Boronia Beach.

The sheltered waters are great for snorkelling, with sea dragons commonly seen. As you walk around the headland, large blue gums and sheoaks frame exquisite views of the Derwent out to the Iron Pot and Eastern Shore.

This track can be combined easily with Alum Cliffs which is at the Northern end of Kingston Beach. Toilets, cafes and buses are available at Kingston Beach.
