Shot Tower, Taroona

 

 

When driving south from Hobart city  a scenic suburban drive heads through Sandy Bay and continues to follow the coast through Taroona to Kingston. There are several safe beaches along the way.

 

At Taroona there is a Shot Tower built in 1780. The tower is open to the public daily. There is a stairway to the top where there are excellent views across the Derwent River. There is a cafe and a gift shop.  Visitor information on the area is also available here.

 

See their facebook page for current information.

 

Another 10 minutes drive will take you to Kingston - Hobart's southern suburbs. From Kingston the main highway continues on to Huonville.

Another minor road continues through Blackman's Bay and follows the coast through Tinderbox and Howden.

 

Howden is a very popular location of experiencing the Aurora Australis - The Southern Lights.

 

From Howden the road joins the Channel Highway just north of Margate.  The Channel Highway continues to follow the coast for a further 100 kilometres to Huonville.
