Covering 140 hectares of bushland Knocklofty Reserve links Hobart to Wellington Reserve and delivers spectacular views of Hobart CBD, South Hobart, Tollmans Hill, Sandy Bay, Derwent River and Eastern
Shore. The Mouheneener Tasmanian Aboriginal people originally called this region the Nibberloone or Linghe areas and used the rich resources of the land to provide food, medicine and shelter.
Early settlers used the area for firewood, quarrying of sandstone, brick making and grazing. A popular destination for artists, the site was featured in many early paintings including a prominent John Glover painting featuring early hunting on the site. The City of Hobart purchased the woodlands in 1942, they are now enjoyed by local walking groups, families, dogs and their owners.
The reserve includes numerous picnic spots and lookout points on the Hobart side of the 375m summit. This site would provide the perfect location for light installations, poetry readings and creative community projects.
