Mt. Wellington - Zigzag/Icehouse loop (Wellington Park)
28 Jul, 2019
Medium
8.26km return
3 hrs
This was an interesting walk and a little challenging in places due to steps and more steps to climb up. We went up the Ice House track and then returned via the Zigzag track.
Bruny Island - Grass Point Track (Bruny Island)
25 Jul, 2019
Easy
6.6km return
2 hrs
Did this walk as part of the Flute Cape track. We walked the Fluted Cape track anti-clockwise which meant we finished on the grass track and headed back to the start. Fantastic views from the top of the Fluted Cape. We did not see any white wallabies, but did see numerous wallabies. Very interesting flora and definitely worth doing.
Fossil Cliffs Circuit (Tasmania)
22 Jul, 2019
Easy
6km one-way
2 hrs
Did this walk after spending the nigh at the Penitentiary. Absolutely mind blowing to be standing among the 275 million year old fossils, and makes you feel insignificant in the grand scope of time. Very easy walk and we explored all of the old ruins on the way.
Darlington to Frenchs Farm (Tasmania)
21 Jul, 2019
Easy
12km one-way
4 hrs
This was our return walk after three days. We took the Inland track on the return. Definitely a lot harder than the coastal track as there are quite a few large ridges to traverse over. The walk is very pleasant and the vegetation here is almost rain forest like compared to the drier coastal walk. We also took the Oast house branch back to Darlington.
Haunted Bay (Tasmania)
20 Jul, 2019
Medium
22km return
4 hrs
Very long walk which is tough going when carrying a big pack. We dropped our packs just after the fork in the trail to Haunted Bay/Robey farm and completed the rest of the walk with day packs. The walk itself is through tea tree and scrub, but the view at the end of the walk made it all worth while.
Darlington to Frenchs Farm (Tasmania)
19 Jul, 2019
Easy
12km one-way
4 hrs
Took the early ferry (10.30) and after signing the walkers registration, we set off on the coastal track. We did a short detour via the painted cliffs but the tide was in so could not go very far or get any decent photo's. We arrived at French's Farm at round 3.30 and set up camp. Lovely walk and very trying as we were not used to carrying heavy packs. Clean toilet and fresh water available here.




Chauncy Vale Caves (Tasmania)
18 Jul, 2019
Easy
7km return
3 hrs
Lovely casual walk. The exit from the caves area can be a little hard to find if you do the walk clockwise.
The Junction (Girraween National Park)
21 Apr, 2019
Easy
5.6km return
90 mins
Done this walk on a number of occasions. Very dry and a lot of trees dead due to drought and fires. No water flowing in any of the creeks. Managed to explore quite a few areas which would normally be inaccessible when the creeks a running.
Box Forest Track (Main Range National Park)
25 Feb, 2019
Easy
5km return
1 hr
Very easy casual stroll. Enjoyable walk. The only downside is you can hear the traffic on the road nearly everywhere on the track.
Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)
8 Jan, 2019
Medium
10.98km
3.5 hrs
Had a day to kill, so decided to do this walk again having done it over 10 years ago. No one else on the walk despite many cars in the car park. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the views from the top.
