Tasmanian Trail

The Tasmanian Trail is a long distance multi-purpose recreational trail extending from Devonport on the northern coast of Tasmania to Dover in the south. It has a length of 480 kilometres.

From its conception it was intended for use by walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders. Therefore it differs from other trails that have usually started as walking tracks and are therefore restricted in use.

The trail links up existing forestry roads and fire trails, country roads and occasionally crosses private land. Up to 90% of the Trail is on some form of made road or track.

It passes through a wide range of environments including some of the most beautiful and fascinating areas of Tasmania. Through forests and farmlands, across highland plateaus and past the buildings and bridges of some of Australia's oldest towns, the Tasmanian Trail provides a journey rich in cultural and natural heritage.
