Getting There

Take a bus or drive your car to the suburb of Fern Tree in Hobart. You can choose to start this walk from the Fern Tree township itself or at the Fern Glade car park (this has more parking).

Shady forest, towering tree ferns, moss covered rocks and a small waterfall make this short loop walk a good option on a hot summers day.

Following the Fern Glade track upstream you are surrounded by lush green vegetation and the constant sound of running water.
