Boronia Beach Walk Southern End

Point of Interest


Descending through the bushland past the cypress pines, to the clear blue secluded waters of Boronia BeachCautiofneels lDiakngeer Cliff Face youve stumbled into the Mediterranean. The historic private residence behind the beach is Boronia, which was once the Boronia Hotel (circa 1900). It was popular in the days when the old ferry docked at the jetty at Kingston Beach bringing day- trippers from Hobart. Folk would visit the hotel for a cup of tea and wander through its terraced rhododendron gardens down to Boronia Beach. The sheltered waters are great for snorkelling, with sea dragons commonly seen. As you walk around the headland, large blue gums and sheoaks frame exquisite views of the Derwent out to the Iron Pot and the Eastern Shore. Middens and stone quarries tell us that this was a popular gathering place for the Aboriginal people. Distance: 2km return. Limited parking at front gate (white posts) and at Kingston Beach. Dogs strictly prohibited inside gated area see regulation signs on site (bird breeding habitat). Closely supervise children at cliff edges.
