Starting from the Tamar Island Wetlands Centre just off the West Tamar Highway, Riverside, this walk leads to the Tamar River Conservation Area via the Tamar Island Walkway. A long boardwalk leads out to the island, taking you right through the wetland between phragmites australis reeds and over the river itself. Along the way, you’re likely to see numerous different species of water birds, as well as frogs, dragonflies and lizards. A short side track leads to a bird hide, where you can quietly observe a variety of birds on the lagoon, including pelicans, swans, cormorants and great egrets. If you look carefully, you can see the wreck of the 'Platypus' that was sunk in the channel in order to improve the water flow. The well-constructed boardwalk is open in daylight all year long and is suitable for strollers and wheelchairs. On Tamar Island, there are picnic tables, barbeques and toilet facilities as well as a jetty giving access to the island via boat. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Tasman Coastal Trail
17.2 km
Oneway

Walk
8 h to 2 days

Starting from the Devil's Kitchen carpark at the end of Tasmans Arch Road, Tasman National Park, this walk takes you along the coast to Fortescue Bay via the Tasman Coastal Trail. You can find some of Tasmania’s most dramatically beautiful coastal scenery on the east coast of the Tasman Peninsula, and experience breathtaking views from the clifftops over beautiful little bays and small offshore islands. A well-defined track follows the spectacular 300m dolerite cliffs along the coast, where you can see an array of wildlife; seals, penguins, dolphins and whales at various times, with fur seals on the rugged coastline, and fairy penguins along the foreshore. The walk starts at Devil's Kitchen, a spectacularly collapsed archway in the sea cliffs, with waves surging in and out below. From here it’s around a 2km hike to Waterfall Bay, where falls cascade over 100m from the clifftops into the sea. After following the dolerite cliffs for several hours the track descends to the lovely Bivouac Bay, and then just around the corner to Canoe Bay, where you can spot the sunken remains of the steamship William Pitt protruding from the water. From here it is not far to the pristine white sands of Fortescue Bay, where you can take a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters. This walk can be done in either direction – north to south from Devil's Kitchen to Fortescue Bay, or the other way around. The tracks are well-formed bush tracks, generally only wide enough for one. Some sections are rocky underfoot and/or muddy. Walkers may choose to stay overnight at Bivouac Bay or Camp Falls. Fortescue Bay has facilities such as toilets, cold showers, fireplaces and gas barbecues. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

The Overland Track

Oneway

Walk
4 days, 6 days to 9 days

The Overland Track is an iconic 4-10 day walk in the heart of Tasmania wilderness. The main spine of this walk guides you through incredibly diverse environments from alpine to lakeside rainforest. Side trips give you access to Mt Ossa, the highest peak in Tasmania as well as many other great peaks, waterfalls and other fantastic places to explore. There are well-established campsites with huts, toilets and tank water each night, a tent is needed as the public huts can not be booked. This track is very popular, especially during summer, you can walk with a guide or do the trip selfguided. Bookings are required during the warmer seasons with spaces filling up quickly. Snow and extreme weather are very possible any time of year, everyone walking the track requires bushwalking experience, those walking in the colder months requires extra alpine walking skills, experience and equipment. Let us begin by acknowledging the palawa people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting near Lake Rowallan, from the car park at the end of Fish River Road, Walls of Jerusalem National Park, this walk leads to the summit of Mount Jerusalem via the Mount Jerusalem Track. Most walkers take 3-4 days to explore the Walls of Jerusalem, using Wild Dog Creek campsite as a base. This site has tent platforms, toilets and running water. To reach the campsite, which is on the alpine plateau, requires some initial effort. From Wild Dog Creek, walking tracks lead through Herods Gate into the interior Walls, passing Lake Salome and the Pool of Bethesda before reaching the imposing Damascus Gate. Optional side tracks lead to Solomon’s Throne and The Temple. Continue your walk through the pencil pine forest to reach Dixons Kingdom. After passing a small alpine lake, the final ascent to Mount Jerusalem zigzags up the rocky slope. Much of the walking track consists of the raised boardwalk, from Wild Dog Creek through to Dixons Kingdom, to protect the fragile alpine vegetation. Walkers are requested to stay on the formed walking tracks at all times, both for their safety and to protect the sensitive alpine region. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Waldheim Chalet at the end of Connells Avenue, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this walk takes you along the Weindorfers Forest Walk. Perfect for families, this lovely stroll takes you through a beautiful rainforest, where you'll see ancient King Billy pines, pandani and Tasmania's renowned deciduous beech. The track leaves from Waldheim chalet and takes a painless grade through the forest. Waldheim Chalet provides an insight into the early history of the Cradle Mountain area and the people who played a pivotal role in the establishment of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. A visual and audio display details the rich history of the chalet and the renowned hospitality and colourful lives of the Weindorfers. Although the chalet is no longer used for accommodation, the nearby Waldheim Cabins offer simple and affordable lodgings. Each cabin is equipped with electric heating, single bunk beds, basic cooking utensils, a small refrigerator, crockery, cutlery and a standard electric stove, making Waldheim an excellent base for further adventures within the park.
