16. Seven Mile Beach Public Reserve

Parks for all People - Access for the mobility impaired in Tasmania's national parks and reserves

Take the Tasman Hwy (A3) about 15 km east of Hobart. The turnoff to Seven Mile Beach is clearly signposted.

The close proximity of this reserve to Hobart makes it a popular beach for visitors, with numerous day use areas. Number One has unsheltered tables and a lawn area suitable for picnicking. The adjacent toilet and shower block has accessible facilities, although wheelchair users may require assistance with the sandy path from the carpark. 

The 5 Mile Beach day use area has a playground and a picnic area with tables and sheltered BBQs. Wheelchair users may require assistance moving around the picnic area due to the sandy ground. Although the walking track from the picnic area is sandy and not accessible to wheelchair users, there is a large, flat, grassed area adjacent to the carpark which is suitable for a variety of activities.
