The reserve also contains 20 kilometres of dedicated world-class mountain bike trails descending through the forest with short and long loops suitable for beginner and advanced riders.
For the more adventurous there's a ten kilometre descent called the Juggernaut that will challenge the best of riders.

St Matthias' Anglican Church


"Visitors gaze on a little village church, simple and unpretentious in design, standing on the grassy river bank, backed with fine trees and reflected in the calm water of the Tamar River" (Frank Heyward, The Examiner 1939).
St Matthias' Anglican Church, surrounded by a beautiful, peaceful 173 year old graveyard, is located in the rural village of Windermere and is a heritage-listed icon in Northern Tasmania. The church was built in 1842 fulfilling a promise by Dr Matthius Gaunt to his young wife before they left England. His wife was concerned that there may not be a church in the area where they would make their home. Dr Gaunt promised that if there was not, he would build one for her. St Matthias' is one of Australia's oldest rural churches and has been in continuous use since its foundation. A Eucharist Service is held every second and fourth Sunday at 1030.
The church has been painted and photographed by many recognised artists. This beautiful bluestone gothic chapel with its romantic history is a popular spot for weddings, baptisms and picnics. The scenic drive around Windermere Road is an easy detour from the East Tamar Highway. Audio tour available via smartphone.
