The track begins near Andrew St and heads north along the left bank of the Jordan. The track takes you to the ford across the Jordan at Ford Road. Ducks and other bird life can be seen along the track. The track follows a footpath from the ford to the Midland Highway. On the other side of the highway the gravel track begins again and heads past the sports ground, equestrian centre and continues along the river to Hartley Court. There are some beautiful spots along the walk and a detour into the Pontville Historic Precinct is well worthwhile.
About the region
Brighton is now effectively a commuter suburb of Hobart. However the area retains interest for the visitor firstly in the accessible Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and secondly in the impressive Georgian buildings which are scattered throughout the surrounding district, often in tiny villages like Broadmarsh and Bagdad. An unintentional bonus in the district is that the delightfully eccentric and very British Royal Marine, Private Hugh Germain, who reputedly travelled through the area with a copy of The Bible and the Arabian Nights, provided names like Jerusalem, Jericho, Jordan, and Lake Tiberius to the places he visited.
Access from Andrew Street, Ford Road or the Midland Highway, Pontville Bridge.
