Today I decided to make the most of this lovely Tasmanian sunshine after work and embark on a short walk and so I headed down to Taroona for the Alum Cliffs walk.

A pleasant track that doesn't take long to get one's heart rate up with a steep climb at the beginning then leveling out.

If you want a walk with amazing views overlooking the Derwent then this is the one for you!!

There are a few good hills to climb but the majority of the walk is very easy and flat.

HOW TO GET THERE:

Drive 15 minutes out of Hobart to the Shot Tower in Taroona.  Here you can park your car, the walk starts from the car park.

TIPS:

When you hit the fork in the track overlooking the beach stick to the upper track, this is not clearly sign posted. I had to spend a good few minutes working out if the arrow was pointing left or right or up the tree.

OTHER:

The track has a mix of man made and natural bush tracks
