Description

Point Vision is the Second Highest point in the Narawntapu National Park, after Mt. Asbestos. A walking track exists, maintained by the Parks and Wildlife service.

The walk starts from near the new information centre in the park, with the track heading SE across Springlawn then joining an old road marked with pink marker tape for most of the distance, which is about 5hrs return for those making an average pace. The track is the aforementioned road for all except for the last few metres. The best views are from the track near the top, Point Vision itself has any views it may have had previously, obscured by trees.

Point Vision Track from Google Earth

Rangers at the information centre have warned of another unauthorised track down from the top of point vision which has been marked by unknown individuals acting without parks approval. They have advised not to take this track for fear we may contribute to the spread of an introduced pest (possibly Phytophthora Cinnamomi).

Point vision isn't a difficult walk, but the park probably offers more rewarding options.


Strangely, the Point Vision track itself isn't marked on the 25k Tasmaps for the Narawntapu National Park. It is roughly marked on some parks literature however. The best plot of the track can be seen by using Google Earth, where the track is clearly visible.
