From Gunn Street the track follows the Derwent River foreshore to the east around Bridgewater and Green Point to the East Derwent Highway Bridge. There are a couple of picnic areas along the way. Plenty of birdlife can be seen around the shallow wetlands along the foreshore including black swans, cormorants, pelicans and white faced herons. There are great views up and down the river and of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. It is possible to continue walking from the East Derwent Highway Bridge along Swan Park Trail.
About the region
Bridgewater, which is only 20 km from the centre of Hobart, has become a commuter suburb for the city. It wasn't always this way. In the early nineteenth century it was a vital link on the north-south route from Hobart to Launceston with one of Tasmania's earliest buildings and the remarkable achievement of the causeway which helped to cross the Derwent River.
