Getting There

There is a carpark at the park of Eddington Street as well as at the end of Killarney Road.

From Gunn Street the track follows the Derwent River foreshore to the east around Bridgewater and Green Point to the East Derwent Highway Bridge. There are a couple of picnic areas along the way. Plenty of birdlife can be seen around the shallow wetlands along the foreshore including black swans, cormorants, pelicans and white faced herons. There are great views up and down the river and of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. It is possible to continue walking from the East Derwent Highway Bridge along Swan Park Trail.
