Notley Hills: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Notley Fern Gorge


Notley Fern Gorge is a remnant patch of rainforest above the Tamar Valley, northern Tasmania. The wet sclerophyll forest area has a walking track and picnic area beneath towering trees.
The forest is dominated by eucalypts towering above the rainforest understorey. The state reserve is well known for a burnt out tree known as 'Bradey's Tree.' It is named after the 1820s bushranger whose gang is believed to have hidden in this forest. There is a 1.5 kilometre (1 mile) track weaving past glades of mosses and ferns which takes about 45-minutes to walk. The walk requires moderate fitness and crosses the creek several times with a steady climb uphill on the return.
Enjoy reading about the types of fauna and flora on information stands throughout the reserve and observe the native birdlife including pink robins and golden whistlers. Other largely nocturnal wildlife include Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian devils and ringtail possums. Marvel at large tree ferns, hard water ferns down by the creek's edge and filmy ferns, found growing on the trunks of trees. After your forest walk, enjoy the picnic and barbecue area.
Notley Fern Gorge is half an hours' drive (24 kilometres/15 miles) north-west of Launceston.

Views up and down the Tamar River with the vista extending over 120kms to Ben Lomond massif in the south and almost all the way to the coast and Bass Strait to the north.

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 Mathias 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 9am.
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.
