Description

This concrete-surfaced trail runs from the Hobart Regatta Grounds on Queens Domain, past the Botanic Gardens, Runnymede Historic House and residential areas, linking the northern suburbs with the city centre. There are urban landscape views, colourful murals and the Tasmanian Transport Museum en route. The trail runs beside an active railway, connecting the Port of Hobart with Claremont in the north. In Claremont a trail branches along the spur line to Cadbury's. There are very few road intersections and it’s popular with recreational users and commuters.

For more information on this trail see the book Rail Trails of Tasmania.
