Follow the footsteps of Charles Darwin when he visited Hobart on the HMS Beagle in 1836. Interpretive signs along the trail are based on the notes and observations Darwin made during his day excursion on Hobart's eastern shore. The track follows the coast between Bellerive and Howrah, then heads inland via local streets to Waverly Flora Park and returns to Kangaroo Bay. The coastal section is reasonably flat and mostly concrete with gentle grades over Bellerive Bluff and Second Bluff. Stencils have been marked on footpaths between Howrah Beach and Waverly Flora Park to assist with navigation. The track through Waverly Flora Park is gravel and has some steeper sections
About the region

To the north Bellerive is bordered by the small foothills of Waverly Flora Park.
