Tracks & Trails

Kingborough Municipality is home to many walking tracks of varying landscape and difficulty. As you explore, you’ll come to appreciate all that Kingborough offers, including its great cultural features, a wonderful variety of landscapes and a great range of birds and animals, including some very special threatened species. Some of the walking tracks may even follow the ancient paths of Tasmanian Aboriginals.

Some walks are suitable for mountain bikes, prams, horses and dogs on leads. Advice is provided for each of the walks but please remember that in nature, you may encounter natural hazards. We cannot guarantee the information is free from error, so our best advice is to be prepared, take your own water and follow the principles of Leave No Trace.

Avoid spreading root rot

Root rot is a serious plant disease which is spread by humans and invades a plant’s roots and kills its host by blocking the uptake of water and nutrients. Once root rot is present it cannot be removed. It may be carried unknowingly on dirty boots, bike and car tyres, horses hooves and camping equipment. Starting your walk with clean gear helps prevent its spread, as does staying on the marked track.

Caring for your local bushland

Many of the local reserves are cared for by one of Kingborough’s Care Groups (Bushcare, Coastcare, Landcare and ‘Friends of’ groups). If you would like to be a part of caring for a natural area near you, contact Council’s Bushcare Officer on (03) 6211 8200, or ask for a copy of the Naturally Ours directory of Care Groups.

Trail etiquette and safety

Being considerate of others and following trail etiquette will assist you to share the tracks responsibly and minimise potential conflict. Click here for the link from the Greater Hobart Trails Website that provides information on multi-use etiquette and some tips on being safe and minimising our impact by following some general principles.
