About Hollybank Reserve
Besides offering the wonderful Australian-first Treetops Adventure, the Hollybank reserve is a popular place for enjoying family outings. Hollybank offers a variety of barbecue and picnic sites from large family groups to intimate quiet sites. You can enjoy a game of cricket, kick a football, relax or have some exercise walking through the many different forest types.
There are a variety of walks to choose from including a stroll down 'The Avenue' or the longer 'Walk of Change' or take the side track down to the junction of Butchers Creek and Pipers River.
The reserve includes both native and exotic forests. The English atmosphere created here is due to its name, its history and its trees, one of the earliest private plantations in Tasmania consisting of European trees. One of these species was originally planted to obtain wood for the construction of tennis racquets.
These deciduous trees are a colourful contrast to the natives in autumn and a delight for the children to play in.
