The Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area is cradled within an angular bend of the South Esk River, only four kilometres from Launceston’s centre.
From Launceston’s West Tamar Hwy (A7), take the sign-posted turnoff to Lake Trevallyn. This will lead to Reatta Road, which passes through the suburb of Trevallyn and provides access to Lake Trevallyn Road (which leads to the lake) and Duck Reach Road (which leads to Village Green/Hoo Hoo Hut) Trevallyn. Signs lead to Village Green/Hoo Hoo Hut.
A variety of paths and tracks allow pedestrian and cyclist access from surrounding residential areas and the Cataract Gorge Reserve area.
Water vessels may access the reserve across Lake Trevallyn. There is a boat ramp with walkway at the end of Lake Trevallyn Road.
The popular Cataract Gorge Reserve, including the historic Duck River Power Station, adjoins the reserve to the south and east.
