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.
|Under 2 hours|
Dogs allowed on lead.
Snowfalls can occur in Wellington Park at any time of the year. The track can be slippery when covered in snow and ice. Bring warm, waterproof clothing.
