The George Town to Low Head Walking and Cycling Trail follows the River Tamar.
Suitable for walkers, runners and cyclists, this free and easily accessible trail was opened in 2011 and was designed to be used by people of all abilities. It is six kilometres in length and begins at York Cove in George Town. Cycling is one of the most enjoyable ways to experience the trail, and bicycle hire is available from the George Town Visitor Information Centre for use on the trail and around the George Town area.
The trail links together key historical sites and areas of natural beauty and wildlife interest, such as Lagoon Bay, York Cove, Windmill Point and the Low Head Pilot Station. You will learn lots along the way about Tasmanian wildlife, colonial and convict history and how Tasmania communicates with the rest of the world.
Did you know that where the River Tamar meets the sea is one of the deepest points of the entire Bass Strait? This makes it popular for shipping and also highly rich in biodiversity, providing you with plenty to see whether it be marine vessels or wildlife.
