KNOCKLOFTY RESERVE

Knocklofty Reserve is part of the foothills of Mt. Wellington above West Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The reserve covers more than 140 hectares of mostly native bushland, and protects an astonishing variety of plants and animals. It is renowned for its frog ponds and birds, including many rare species.

A great attraction for visitors are the scenic walking tracks with spectacular views of the City and Mt. Wellington.

The healthy, thriving native bushland you see in Knocklofty Reserve today is not an accident. It has resulted from many years of tireless dedication from a small group of Bushcare volunteers: The Friends of Knocklofty Bushcare Group [FoKL]. The group, formed in 1992, works on the reserve in partnership with the Hobart City Council, who owns the land on behalf of the citizens of Hobart.
