2 February Run at Ferndene Forest Reserve
Follow Ironcliffe Rd in Penguin till you get to the picnic area.
We will dally up along the stream through beautiful shady manferns and tall Eucalypt forest, through an historic mining area and maybe even see Thorsby’s Tunnel. Ferndene is the only reserve in Tasmania where the Blechnum cartilagineum fern grows. It is an extremely rare fern species and is protected.
OnOn at Pioneers abode despite the well-equipped picnic area at Ferndene. Pioneer might even prepare a refreshing iced Blechnum tea made from fresh ferns!
