This is one of Tasmania's 60 Great Short Walks and takes you along the bank of the Emu River not far from the centre of Burnie.

The sign says, "Quiet observers often see platypus from the picnic area". We tried to be very quiet but unfortunately didn't see any.

The walk is not far from the site of the old Paper Mill but you would have no idea of this when you do the walk.

The tree ferns are amazing here!
