Shady forest, towering tree ferns and lush moss make this short, mostly flat walk to a small waterfall well worthwhile. The first part of the route along the Pipeline Track to the Fern Tree Bower is ideal for bikes (and even pushers!)
About the region
Fern Tree is an outlying suburb of Hobart. The name Fern Tree is adapted from the common name of the plant Dicksonia antarctica which grows abundantly in the area. Set beneath Mount Wellington, whose summit is at 1270 metres above sea level, Fern Tree is 13 km by road from Hobart's central business district.
Take a bus or drive a car to the suburb of Fern Tree in Hobart to the start of the track.
