Walklist

Hartz Mountains

Hartz Peak and Lake

A relatively easy walk, which allows magnificent views of much of the south-west, from Adamsons Peak to Mt Anne and beyond. On a clear day you can see Frenchmans. Probably has the highest view/effort ratio of any walk in Southern Tasmania.

Mt Snowy and Arthur and Emily Tarns

An easy-medium walk depending on route chosen, which provides good views of the southern ranges, Hartz Peak and if done to include Hartz Peak itself, terrific views of much of South-West Tasmania. The tarns are picturesque and add variety to the walk.

Lake Osborne

A pleasant short walk to an attractive alpine lake across a glacial landscape.

Lake Esperance and Ladies Tarn (Hartz Plateau)

A quite easy walk across an alpine plateau to attractive small lakes.

Arve Falls

Very short walk along a well-made track to attractive falls and creek, with some interpretative signs explaining the sub-alpine vegetation.

Wellington Range

Trestle Mountain and Collins Bonnet (Sleeping Beauty)

A very long and steep climb, particularly if doing both peaks, but featuring great mountain and valley views, both during the walk and from the peaks.

Cathedral Rock

A solid climb to a spectacular cliff with interesting views.

Snowy Range

Lake Skinner and Snowy South

A solid climb, with beautiful Lake Skinner as a stop-off point, and great views from the peak.

Nevada Peak

Great walk over relatively unused tracks to this peak adjacent to Snowy South, with great views and attractive alpine surroundings.

Adamsons Area

Adamsons Peak

A long climb, known by some as "Mt Big". Bit easier than Mt Anne though, and no rock scrambling. Great views of the southern ranges.

Duckhole Lake

An easy walk to a small lake in pleasant forest south of Dover.

Adamsons Falls

Quite short walk to an attractive waterfall. Some attractive forest sections. Note that the waterfall is inside the Southwest National Park. This is not noted on the walk signage. The walk starts outside the National Park.

Far South

South Cape Bay

A flat walk to a wild surf beach affording great views of coastal features.

Huonville/Snug Tiers Area

Herringback

Easy climb on 4WD tracks to a good view of the Huon Valley, Wellington Range and more distant peaks.

Pelverata Falls

An easy walk to a high waterfall, spectacular after heavy rain.

Grey Mountain

Grey Mt looks across the Huon Valley from behind Cygnet, to the surrounding peaks. Good views without the climbs required to some other walks. All on 4WD tracks however. Some navigational complexity. Access from Margate.
