Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This Reserve is located only about five kilometres outside of Hobart next to two reservoirs that were first constructed in the 1860's. The Sandy Bay Rivulet runs in front of the reservoirs. A roadway, single lane in some spots, snakes along the edge of the reservoirs.

    There were a total of 12 numbered BBQ sites (some undercover) each with their own parking areas. I understand that there is a site were you can book these at a cost.

    There was seating and playground equipment but we did not see anyone engaging in water activities. Also it appeared that dogs were not allowed.

    There were however several good walking paths. We walked up to the man-made Gentile Annie Falls, although it had been a long time since water had flowed over them.

    We thought it was a fantastic family picnic and BBQ site with good toilet facilities and room for children to ride bikes and scooters.

    We visited day after heavy rain and there was still SNOW lying around between the rocks. The view was exceptional- could see 360! The Ferntree Walk is worth visiting too just past the turn off for Kunanyi

    The park is quite large and encompasses Mt Wellington and the Pinnacle and is a fairly typical park. The are some tracks on the way up but the most interesting area is at the top.

    This small Reserve was quite difficult to find. There was no signs on the road but our sat nav put us in the right area, after that we had to ask. There is a building site next to the track that takes you down to the entrance, very easy to miss.
    A small Reserve with a lake to walk around and beautiful gum trees. We were looking for an endemic bird, the 40 Spotted Pardalote which used to appear here. Not there now, unfortunately. Nice and quiet place where people walk their dogs.

    A eden of estuarine marshes,endangered heathland and rare Oyster Bay pine.

    Also home to numerous rare flora and fauna including the New Holland Mouse.

    Unfortunately didn’t have anyway of taking pics, but it’s worth a visit to go for hike.

    TIP: head along Palana Rd (all weather gravel road) and around 200m before Killiecrankie Rd turn right onto Mount Boyes track
