Walk, ride your bike or take a bus to the city to begin the trail.
An enjoyable loop track leaving from either the Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre, Macquarie Wharf Cruise Terminal, the Elizabeth Street Mall or the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. This route links a variety of natural and cultural heritage features, ideal for cyclists and dogs on lead.
Stop and smell the roses in the grounds of Tasmania’s first university campus before strolling between the cedar and cypress trees of the Soldiers Memorial Avenue. Planted in 1918, the Avenue has recently undergone extensive restoration. The adjacent grasslands are an important remnant of the native vegetation that was once widespread around Hobart.
Returning to the city you will pass the beautiful Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and also the gates to the old Beaumaris Zoo, where the last captive Tasmanian Tiger died in 1936.
