walking tracks in Tasmania


Riverside Drive Foreshore Walk

The Riverside Drive walking track begins at the end of Riverside Drive, Bridgewater, where there is a jetty and parking area. The walk follows the foreshore along the path that is the maintenance track for the railway line west of Bridgewater. The railway line runs alongside and on the top side of the walking track.

This is a beautiful, easy foreshore walk with large areas of salt marsh habitat and bird life, including Little Grassbirds (Megalurus gramineus). There are spectacular views of Mt Dromedary and the Derwent River.

Distance: 2.7km one way. Allow 1.5 hours for the return walk.
