Fern Tree

Hobart’s highest suburb is nestled under Mt Wellington at 400m above sea level. The leafy village acts as gateway to Wellington Park’s array of hiking, 4WD and riding trails. Walks range anywhere from 20 mins to 7 hours, and take hikers through rainforest, past waterfalls, and offer amazing views over the Channel region. Make sure to dress for changing conditions, use up to date maps, and let someone know about your plans.
