Lake Esperence

From the car park of the fantastic Hartz Mountains Nation park this is an easy walk however the weather can turn into blizzard conditions at the drop of a hat, we were lucky, middle of summer weather held out for us but was still only 13 degrees. Beautiful views of the surrounding ranges & lake Esperance will not disappoint, despite the temp I’d have gone swimming if I’d had a towel. Very mild incline for the first part of the walk but very easy overall Highly Recommend

Meander Falls Circuit

One of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, the hike to Meander Falls can be done as a circular walk, taking in a variety of terrain and a number of smaller (but equally impressive) falls by taking the Split Rock Track back.

Mt Jerusalem, Walls of Jerusalem

A hardened track to Dixons Kingdom and Mt Jerusalem provides relatively easy access to Tasmania’s most remote alpine National Park, with spectacular scenery and the option of climbing a number of peaks along the track.

Mt Roland

Located near Sheffield, on the edge of the Great Western Tiers region of Tasmania. Looks quite ominous as you approach from Sheffield with its many sheer cliffs. A good day walk that is easy to follow, with a large portion of the walk done across the plateau along to the summit. The path has branches off to the other mountains near by (Mt Van Dyke, Mt Claude), but the Mt Roland track is much better maintained.

Mt Tyndall Summit + Cave

Short walk through swampy teatree, climbing up to exposed rocky goat path to summit and surrounds. There is good water halfway up and at the plateau the track branches off. Take the left path to the summit, the last 500m is unmarked and offers some rock scrambling and pushing through low bushes. The right leads to hilltop lakes, a cave for overnight camping and a great view of the ampetheatre lake Huntley

Projection Bluff

Short steep rough track ( little track to speak of really ) that will give you great views from the Lake Hwy about 30km (approx ) from Deloriane

Quamby Bluff

The walk starts in farmland, then passes through vegetation ranging from eucalypt forest to rainforest before finally ending up in open high altitude scrub. This involves scrambling over boulders again but it's not really that steep.Track can be at times tricky to follow so take note of pink ribbons and red markers ( yellow markers on descend )

Saint Valentines Peak

A nice walk preferably on a good weather day. The wind was blowing pretty hard on the summit the day I climbed. Well worth the views. Saw an echidna at the summit. The peak is approx 1100 meters and it stands alone so the views are very nice.
