Conversion of Old Farm Track from shared to single use (bicycle only)
The Wellington Park Management Trust has approved the conversion of Old Farm Track from shared use to single use (bicycle only, downhill only). Hobart City Council completed the works required to convert the track to single use in June 2015. Walkers are no longer allowed to use the track.
The conversion was recommended in the Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Master Plan (2012). The Master Plan was endorsed by the Trust subject to the environmental, heritage and social impacts of each recommended conversion being assessed. The assessment of Old Farm Track was carried out by Hobart City Council prior to the change of use being approved by the Trust.
