Arm End Public Recreation Reserve

Point of Interest


Spitfarm Road, Opossum Bay, Tasmania.


Excellent walk with views to the end of the South Arm. Offers great views of Kingston and surrounding areas. Park at the end of Spit Farm Road by the boom gate. Distance: 6km A pleasant 2hr walk along a mown track through mostly open grassland with fantastic views of the Derwent estuary and kunanyi/Mount Wellington. There are secluded beaches, lots of bird life including wedge-tailed eagles and many rabbit burrows throughout the reserve so please watch your step. The area is rich in Aboriginal heritage and was part of the land of the Muriminina people prior to colonisation. The land was granted by colonial authorities to William Gellibrand who built a home on the property, cleared the land for farming and constructed his own tomb at Mary Ann Bay, which can still be seen. The track follows the coast of the peninsula passing Shelly Beach, Gellibrand Point, Mary Ann Bay and Mitchells Beach. There is an alternative inland route between Mary Ann Bay and White Rock Point that goes over the small hills in the reserve. Dog friendly on leash.
