Dog Friendly: Arm End Recreation Reserve

An easy 45-minute drive from Hobart will see you at O’Possum Bay on South Arm Peninsula. Dogs need to stay on-lead, which is possibly a shame if you have a well-behaved pooch you can keep under effective control.

Dogs on lead: Arm End Recreation Reserve

We don’t have a dog like that. Our Coco would never be seen again if we let her loose on South Arm Peninsula. So we were happy to keep Coco on-lead and Coco was happy enough, despite her desperate desire to follow all the exotic, rabbit smells.

Golf Course in Tasmania

If developers ever build the golf course at Arm End Recreation Reserve, it will rival Barnbougle in north east Tasmania. The Derwent River views across the eastern suburbs of Hobart… simply breathtaking.
