The trail ends at the Low Head Historic Precinct where buildings date from 1835 and surround a ‘village green’.

Central Coast Council
Situated between the cities of Burnie and Devonport on Tasmania’s north-west coast, the Central Coast is gifted with an abundance of natural beauty. From the Leven Canyon and caves to the south, through rich red basalt agricultural lands, and on to rugged rocky foreshores and pristine beaches, this area is eye catching all the way.
Penguin, with its distinctive beachside look and feel, and Ulverstone the administrative centre, both attract visitors with shops and stores selling locally grown produce and locally crafted giftware. Ulverstone’s recently completed Wharf Complex with restaurant and community space, completes a major river-side development that also boasts extensive multi-use tracks and children’s playgrounds.
“Location,location,location!”, it’s the Central Coast’s ‘geographic centrality’ that makes it a great place for visitors to stay. Ninety minutes to Cradle Mt., and only 30 minutes to a city, Ulverstone offers a central ‘base’ from which to explore the major attractions of the NW Coast. Visit www.coasttocanyon.com.au
