Mavista Nature Walk
South Bruny Island
Directions - Located on South Bruny Island, the Mavista Nature Walk is a short drive from Adventure Bay. After reaching Adventure Bay, keep driving along Adventure Bay Road, crossing Cook Creek before turning right onto Lockleys Road. Drive past the Raspberry Farm until you reach the right turn for Resolution Road. Take this and drive along until you see the signs for the Mavista Picnic Area, with a small area to park on the other side of the road. The trail head is located up the stairs at the stone shelter.
The Hike - With most of the hiking trails on Bruny Island taking in the stunning coastline, I was excited to check out the Mavista Nature Walk as it looked to offer a bit of temperate rainforest. One of my favourite types of scenery to walk through when visiting Tasmania, this would be the first hike on an action packed day that would see me tackle four trails across South Bruny Island. Starting relatively early, I enjoyed some breakfast and coffee at my accommodation The Neck, before driving down to Adventure Bay.
