Margate Rivulet Track is a 4.0km, grade 2 hike located in Margate, Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

This return walk is more than just rolling green hills and friendly horses, it's also rich in local history. Back in 1818, Margate was a convict sawing station. The station operated for around seven years, supplying much of the timber for the early Hobart buildings. The dry stone wall in Davis Flat, a good picnic spot, are believed to be convict built. Margate was also a fruit and hop growing district, and a timber and ship building port.

About the region
