Charles Darwin Trail

Point of Interest


Cambridge Road, Hobart, Tasmania.


Start at car park at the end of Cambridge Road in Bellerive Village. Distance: 12km Follow the footsteps of Charles Darwin when he visited Hobart in 1836. Interpretive signs along the trail are based on the notes and observations Darwin made during his day excursion on Hobart's eastern shore. The track follows the coast between Bellerive and Howrah, then heads inland via local streets to Waverly Flora Park and returns to Kangaroo Bay. The coastal section is reasonably flat and mostly concrete with gentle grades over Bellerive Bluff and Second Bluff. Stencils have been marked on footpaths between Howrah Beach and Waverly Flora Park to assist with navigation. The track through Waverly Flora Park is gravel and has some steeper sections. Dogs may be off lead and under effective control in the Waverly Flora Park section of the track (Effective control means your dog is in close proximity, in line of sight, immediately responds to your voice command. If not, leave your dog on lead). All other sections dogs must be on a lead. (
