Recreational opportunities abound
Hobart area residents are fortunate in having easy access to a variety of safe, sandy swimming beaches within 20 minutes of the CBD. This is increasingly rare for a capital city and adds greatly to our quality of life. Each year an estimated 20,000 anglers fish the region and an enormous amount of boating opportunities exist across the harbour and our bays. Easy and challenging walking tracks are used throughout the seasons by visitors and locals alike.
The Derwent estuary supports extensive recreational fishing activities, as well as being an important regional fishing port.
There are a range of walking, cycling, mountain biking and horse riding tracks in the Derwent estuary region.
The Derwent Estuary has a very active sailing community with many hundreds of yachts moored at various docks.
