Description

An easy loop walk through bush and parkland with playground areas and barbecue facilities. The Waterworks Reserve is a popular spot for family celebrations. Barbecue shelters can be booked in advance through the Hobart City Council.

The loop walk winds around the edge of the Upper and Lower Reservoirs. A shorter option is to make a loop around just one reservoir. Keep your eyes open within the bushland section of the walk as these are excellent places to observe a variety of birds and fungi. Discover the history of supplying fresh water to Hobart in the displays within the historic sandstone Receiving House.
