Short Walks

Walks range from ten minute easy strolls along duckboard platforms, with disabled access, to week-long hikes requiring strenuous effort and careful planning.

Whichever type you choose please sign in wherever logbooks are provided and always let someone reliable know how long you plan to be.

Bushwalking is a wonderful way to take in the scenic beauty of the forest environment. Along the way you are likely to see and hear a range of native animals and birds. What you experience will depend on the time of day and precisely where you are, so wherever you walk should provide you with new delights.

Tasmania’s weather can be very unpredictable and can change suddenly. Never venture far from your car without a warm coat - even on fine days.
