TOP SHORT WALKS
Looking for some of Tasmania's best short-walks that will leave you feeling inspired and your journey well-travelled. We have put together our top short-walk picks.
ORGAN PIPES TRACK.
KUNANYI/ MOUNT WELLINGTON. HOBART
Offering spectacular out across Hobart, the Organ Pipes Track is an excellent walk to also explore the native alpine bush-land of Mount Wellington. The mountain has a range of different walks, and is popular to down-hill bike riding, but the Organ Pipes is one of the most popular. Starting from The Springs car-park, the track continues up the mountain, underneath the fluted Organ Pipes - dolerite rock formation - to The Chalet (a small picnic shelter).
DISTANCE Hobart - Kingston Beach: 15 minutes (car)
WALK DURATION: 3-4 hours return
DON RIVER TRACK.
DON. DEVONPORT. NORTH-WEST TASMANIA
A fabulous short circuit (40 minutes return) that takes you along both sides of the Don River, this track is a popular walking track for runners and cyclists also. The track starts at the Don River Railway Station car-park (small park area), and takes you through river bushland up to Devonport's newly upgrade Aquatic Centre, down to the hills of Don Heads, before returning back to the car-park.
DISTANCE Devonport - Don River Railway Car-Park: 5 minutes (car)
WALK DURATION: 40 minutes return (circuit)
