Hollybank Forest Reserve

Natural Attractions

Hollybank Forest Reserve is just a 20-minute drive from Launceston. This is one of Tasmania’s most popular picnic areas and has a distinctly European flavour. In autumn, exotic deciduous trees are a colourful contrast to the natives.

A 40-minute walk passes through examples of Tasmania’s major production forest types in a demonstration forest. Interpretive signs show how each forest type is harvested and regenerated.
The reserve also contains 20 kilometres of dedicated mountain bike trails descending through the forest with short and long loops suitable for beginner and advanced riders.

For the more adventurous there’s a ten kilometre descent called the Juggernaut that will challenge the best of riders. There is a bike map, a toilet, tap and bike wash at the trailhead.
