The Don Reserve is a peaceful and stunning bushland reserve featuring walking tracks near and beside the Don River, also a playground beside Splash Devonport Aquatic Centre.

The Reserve borders the Don River and contains 32 hectares of Black Gum forest, seven hectares of Swamp Paperbark and 16 hectares of Coastal Black Peppermint. A great place to see birds, with over 70 species recorded, 20 more than for most similar reserves in Tasmania, including the rare Swift Parrot.

Sawdust Bridge – Believed to be the first primitive crossing over any river on the North-West Coast, the Sawdust Bridge (named because it was adjacent to vast deposits of sawdust which were flumed along the riverbank from the sawmill) was originally constructed of sapling spars and was capable of taking foot and single horse traffic. Over the years the bridge fell into disrepair numerous times until it was brought back to life in 1988 as a Bicentennial project and again in 2017.

It is accessible seven days a week by pathways with parking available.
