As I left Technopark I had a view of a new aspect of the Derwent River.
The Derwent River flows into Prince of Wales Bay and consists of tiny inlets including one at the bottom of the Dowsing Point hill. I noted there were no opportunities to walk next to the edge in the bay below – either vegetation hung over the water or private jetties and businesses crowded the edge.
I walked along a path from the Australian Army Derwent Barracks on Goodwood Road that leads to and crosses the bridge. The quality of the path is variable and I suspect it is not much used. One cyclist passed me on my walk to the bridge and no-one was around during my return trip.
At the bridge I noticed the large bronze plaque marking the official opening of the bridge – heavily graffitied.
But was there a path to the river below? The absence of signage was not encouraging.
