A nice little walk along the Derwent River that has good paths and interesting things to see. It has a few art works, lots of seats, toilets and a playground. Not to mention the beaches and water front.
There are lots of place to start and finish the walk as there are quite a few beach access points.
Some of the path is of high quality and suitable for wheelchairs.
A pretty interesting sculpture marks the point where we started our walk.
The path follows right along the beach at Little Sandy Bay, which is great for anyone with mobility issues or prams as they can get close to the water.
Now this is a great spot for a seat!
Blinky Bill Reserve and Beach is a dog off-leash area.
Nice spot for a view back up the Derwent at the old Sewerage Outfall.
The remains of searchlight bunker at Blinking Billy Point where two lights lit up the sky from 1890 to WWII, playing their role as part of the the Derwent Defence Network.
The path ends but we wish it didn't as love to keep walking along here.
Good little playground that backs onto the Long Beach Reserve.
The Beacon is a 2013 sculpture, commissioned by the City of Hobart, by Finnish-born Australian artist Ari Purhonen.
Follow the path through the bushes to continue to walk the route to Nurgrove Beach.
The beach is dog on-leash from 9am to 7pm and a popular route for walking to school.
The walk end, or turn around point, is at a private jetty that also has access to Sandy Point Rd through private property.
There a few access point to the walk, some on public land and others through private property.
