Getting There

Taroona Foreshore Track can be accessed from numerous locations including Wandella Ave, Jenkins St, Hinsby Rd, Illawong Cres, Devon Walk and Kelvedon Ave.

You can access Taroona’s popular foreshore track from many streets which run down to the Derwent River. The track takes you on a gentle stroll around the coastline, along Hinsby and Taroona beaches, and amongst remnant coastal bushland. Blue gums, black gums, sheoaks and blackwoods form the canopy, with an understorey of hopbush, banksias, coast wattle, salt bush and grasses. Enjoy the views south to the Alum Cliffs and the Shot Tower, and over the Derwent River to Opossum Bay and South Arm.

Not so long ago, the foreshore was a popular gathering place for the Mouhenneener Aboriginal people. ‘Taroona’ is the Aboriginal name for chiton (kytun) – a shell animal found along the foreshore. Taroona’s coastal foreshore and the gullies leading into it are cared for by a local volunteer group, the Taroona Environment Network.

The Track extends around the Kelvedon Oval linking into Flinders Esplanade which takes you all the way to the Taroona High and Primary School.
