Hike Summary

Follow the ridgeline higher and higher through open bushland and watch the water view across Storm Bay and North West Bay get better and better. The whole of Tinderbox Peninsula contains important white gum forest – critical habitat for the threatened forty-spotted pardalote. A new access track now eliminates the need to walk up the gravel road from the end of Estuary Drive. Gravel road, several steep sections, many loose stones on track. This track provides a 3.6 km return walk.

About the region

Tinderbox Hills is a vibrant landscape of dense forest and diverse woodland, alive with the song of birds. Only half an hour’s drive from the centre of Hobart, the 67 hectares of Tinderbox Hills is one of the last areas of undisturbed nature so close to Tasmania’s capital.

Getting there

Tinderbox Hills Track is accessed from the end of Estuary Drive in Blackmans Bay.
