WALK SUMMARY

THIS PAGE IS AT AN EARLY STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT. PLEASE HELP US BY MAKING SUGGESTIONS AND SENDING PHOTOS! THANK YOU!
 

Mountains, high moorlands, waterfalls and lakes, forest. A huge variety of vegetation and wildlife.  And not too many people when off the short routes. Equals outstanding walking.

 

An old national park, with good reason. A mere 80km from Hobart, but this is magnificent, remote country.

 

A big range of fine short / lower walks includes:
  • The short trail to the magnificent Russell Falls
  • The 2hr trail to Lady Barron Falls
  • The short but fascinating Pandini Grove Nature Walk beside Lake Dobson

 

Higher level walks
  • The famous Tarn Shelf Track, up to seven hours' walking depending on your tum-break, is one of Tasmania's best. Get up to alpine shrubs above the forests, enjoy gorgeous lakes and cliffs on this 'shelf' in the mountains.
  • Other higher-level walks include the Mt Field East Circuit, Lake Belcher, Seagers Lookout, and Lake Seal Lookout.
 

Come prepared for unpredictable weather in the high country.

 

See our Tasmania page for more general and practical information.
