BELLERIVE BEACH

A beautiful beach practically at your door step. The beach is just a 6 minute walk (550m), and well worth a visit. It is great for an early morning walk - if you continue along the beach past the headland, you will get to Howrah Beach too. The park on the grass behind the beach is also ideal for kids, plus there are free public BBQs, and exercise equipment.

CHARLES DARWIN TRAIL

Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin when he visited Hobart on HMS Beagle in 1836. Interpretive signs along the trail are based on the notes and observations that Darwin made during his day excursion on Hobart's eastern shore.

The route follows the coast to Howrah Road, where the trail heads inland via local streets to Waverley Flora Park, returning to Kangaroo Bay. There are stencils on footpaths and signage at key turning points. The entire trail is 11.5km or 4.5 hours, however it is broken into sections, so you can easily walk just a section or two.
