Take a bus or drive a car to the suburb of Fern Tree in Hobart. There is limited parking on Pinnacle Road at the start of this walk. An alternative starting point and the best place to park is Fern Glade Car Park or Fern Tree township.

Colourful shows of wildflowers in summer, plenty of birds and good views of the Organ Pipes are additional highlights of this walk. Being at a lower elevation with a sunny aspect makes this a good option for a winter walk.
Lush green ferns and mosses surround O’Grady’s Falls which are best viewed from the middle of the bridge. The cold clear water cascading over these falls flows into Hobart Rivulet, under the city and then into the Derwent River.
