Active RetireesTM | 13 Probus members from Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland enjoyed the recent Probus Hervey Bay Retreat, including visits to Bundaberg's Rum Distillery, the Bustard Head Lighthouse, 1770 and the Glasshouse Mountains, as well as a whale-watching cruise. Thanks to Trade Travel for organising the Retreat. Probus retreat WALK THIS WAY By Richard Cann Hobart Rivulet, Tasmania Length: 2km Difficulty: Easy Summer sees walkers from all over the world descend on Tasmania to hit its many iconic trails. However, with Hobart's Taste Festival bringing fine wines, cheeses and other culinary delights over the New Year, visitors may want to stay close to the capital's buzzing waterfront. The Hobart Rivulet walk offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of this 208-year old city. The rivulet was Hobart's original fresh water source and although much of its course now flows under the CBD, its convict-built tunnels and archways can still be seen. Pick up the trail at the back of the carpark on Molle Street, opposite the junction with Collins Street. After walking upstream through suburban streets the trail climbs through bush before dropping down to cross the stream at the end of Degraves Street. Here, you'll find the remains of the Female Factory, where convict women and their children lived. Finally, the trail then leads to the Cascade Brewery, which first took fresh mountain water from the rivulet in 1824. Its gardens offer a great spot for a picnic, or head inside to sample the ales and lagers, including the 10th anniversary hop harvest one-off, Cascade First Harvest. For expert commentary on the rivulet, try the two-hour guided walking tour, which runs on Thursdays from 4.15pm. The tour costs $22 for adults and $14 for concession or groups of 10 or more.
