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