Today’s article is about our recent Tasman Bridge walk. I apologise for monopolising the agenda with stories about walking. It probably seems like I’m obsessed with this simple activity… and there’s good reason for that. I am obsessed, it’s true! The last few stories about walking in Hobart have been very well received (thank-you!), but if you really are tired of my ramblings about rambling, you only need say. I will keep walking, but I’ll do it silently!
Tasman Bridge Walk and Talk
How about a compromise? I’ll keep this talk about the Tasman Bridge walk extremely brief, sharing barely more than a few photos. Just to get the whole experience out of my system, so I can move on to other entertaining snippets of news about Tasmania. I promise! Although I do have several more walks planned (and some even completed already), so be warned.
This time, we started walking from the car park at Montagu Bay Reserve, which includes a children’s playground. The lawned area was populated with lots of families, kicking soccer balls and playing on the equipment. This track would be perfect for a family bike ride too, with several other playgrounds spread out along the trail to break the journey.

Clarence Foreshore Trail
This section of the Clarence Foreshore Trail continues from the Tasman Bridge, past more yachts in Lindisfarne Bay to ANZAC Park at Lindisfarne Point. The Tasman Bridge walk from Montagu Bay Reserve to ANZAC Park is about 3-4 kms and takes up to an hour when walking casually.
The Tasman Bridge walk is a middle section of the extensive Clarence Foreshore Trail. Fitness enthusiasts can tackle the entire length of the walk/cycle from Geilston Bay to Pindos Park at Tranmere Point, taking in the Bellerive Boardwalk and Howrah as well.
Dog-Friendly Walk in Hobart
Dogs are permitted, but must be on-lead for the Tasman Bridge walk we’ve described here. Off-lead areas make up other parts of the Clarence Foreshore Trail.
Donna from Seaside Expressions Jewellery suggested we return again to take photos of the Tasman Bridge at night. We think that’s an excellent idea. We may need some photography tuition from Shutterbug Walkabouts Tasmania beforehand though. The likelihood of us capturing photos showcasing black and blurry nothingness is currently quite high!
