This moderate to hard walk takes you through schlerophyll with an understory of prickly heath up above the tree line to the alpine Ben Lomond Plateau with magnificent views out to the Tasman Sea. Best not to walk in wet or slippery conditions.
This easy walk is 20 min return to the Falls or 60 min via the Cash’s Gorge circuit. A spectacular 100m single drop waterfall opens out onto magnificent views across New River Valley. Have a picnic, enjoy the cool mountain air. Enjoy the facility built by the local community.
Set aside five hours for this adventure. You will want to savour the majesty of the ancient trees and the view out across Scottsdale to the ocean as your reward. This beautiful remnant temperate rainforest is surrounded by plantation timber and roadside weeds.
This walk has been regularly traversed for over 100 years. Legend has it that Thylacines were often seen on the track. With lots of photo stops and a long break to enjoy the view at the summit, we took about three hours to complete the walk.
As well as being great for MTB riding, the Blue Derby trails are ideal for walking too. Derby is a small town shaped by its mining history. These trails take you through old mining sites rich in heritage and through regenerated high-conservation value forests.
Wanting to cool off over summer? A hot summers day, clear sparkling water and a secluded beach in north east Tasmania. It doesn't get much better than this. Lemons beach, Petal Point near Little Musselroe is an interesting one-hour drive.
