Cleaning up the Derwent improves the swimming, fishing and walking opportunities in Hobart.
- The Derwent Esutary Program conducts Beach Watch which involves weekly sampling over the summer months at popular beaches and bays to check if they are safe for swimming.
- Mercury levels in commonly fished species are monitored annually and health advice is updated regularly.
- Walking tracks can be found from New Norfolk and along the eastern and western shores of the Derwent. Find details in the Foreshore Walking Tracks guide - map and text.
