Hobart Rivulet, meet at C3

Following Hobart Rivulet upstream from the city to the foothills of kunanyi / Mount Wellington, this trail has a gentle uphill grade.

64 Anglesea St, Hobart TAS 7004


The Hobart Rivulet Track is level with a slight uphill grade. The main path is wheelchair accessible, but getting closer to the water often requires walking across sloping ground and might be challenging for those with mobility issues.

Eat and drink

BYO water and snacks if needed.

A Seat at the Table

Beaker Street Festival’s pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our science and art offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. When you buy a ticket you have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly towards allowing someone else to access this great event. All donations $2 and over are tax-deductible.

If you’d like to request one or two free tickets, please let us know. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email.
