city centre North Hobart restaurant district is reached. Another
kilometre further on Augusta Road road heads off to the left. A 10 or 15
minutes drive takes you to the end of Augusta Road. The New Town
Falls track commences here. About an hours walk to the falls.
The track is well made and
well marked. There are many tracks in the area and ultimately reach the
summit of Mt Wellington. Tracks often cut across fire trails.
