Goblin Forest Walk, Blue Tier (48)

Goblin Forest Walk, Blue Tier (48)

great-short-walk-mapA short walk but one steeped in history. That sums up the Goblin Forest walk in just a few words. This short circuit (400m) is unusual in that it runs through an area of regenerated rain forest.

Formerly the site of extensive tin mining, nature has reclaimed the ravaged land and created a new forest. The young trees are in stark contrast to the more mature ones in the older forests on Tasmania.

There are several combined walking and mountain bike tracks on the Blue Tier, but the Goblin Forest walk is by far the shortest and easiest at 20-minutes for the circuit, taken at a casual pace. Rated Level 1, it is suitable for people of all ages and is regarded as very wheelchair and stroller friendly. It is a perfect introductory bush walk for the whole family and is the perfect spot for a picnic.

Sun protection as always is recommended and clothing suitable for the day’s conditions. Having a jersey or jacket on hand is advisable.

Firearms are forbidden. Leashed dogs are welcome on the track, as are bicycles, however cyclists must stay on the formed surfaces.

Park fees DO NOT apply.

Facilities:

There are picnic and BBQ’ facilities, a shelter and toilets at the car park.

Vehicle Access:

Access is via Anchor Road off the Tasman Highway (A3) 20kms south of Weldborough. Drive towards Lottah and Poimena until you arrive at the car park. Driving from St Helena on the Lottah Road brings you to the start point.

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people.My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch.My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
