Fern Glade Bushwalk Burnie Tasmania

fern glade burnie Bushwalk Description

Fern Glade is one of Burnie's most valuable natural resources located in a peaceful river valley haven on the edge of the city. Fern Glade Reserve is only 3.9km from the City Centre to the main entrance and offers long walks along the banks of the Emu River and the chance to see the shy Australia platypus.

The Reserve also offers barbecue facilities, picnic furniture and toilets and can be accessed by vehicles at the main entrance or from a second entrance app. 1/2 a kilometre up river.

More than a dozen species of native orchids can be found noted along the walking track, which offers a longer three-hour bush walk through native vegetation in a minimally developed state for the more adventurous.

Fern Glade is a magnificent walk among large, spectacular tree ferns along the Emu River. If you are lucky you may see a platypus.
