Autumn, as the days are cooling a little but plenty of daylight still, is generally a pleasant time to be in the bush. Parts of the track could do with a touch up before winter and we may also look at the foxglove problem some more. Join us for a day out on the PCT.

Warners Track  is a steady climb from near Jackeys March culminating at Adams Peak on the Central Plateau..

Its not my intention to climb Adams Peak but rather enjoy the around 7 kilometre walk up and back.

Most of the track is beside Bliss Creek providing many little waterfalls.

Till we reach the plateau the walk is rather sheltered however it can be rather cold.

Prospectives with winter gear will be welcome.

Mt Pillinger is a small mountain overlooking Lees Paddocks and has tremendous views to Mt Ossa. Fully tracked from the Arm River Track. Twelve km of walking, which is enough when the days are short. Text me on 0428 451 528

Category Image Rinadena Falls This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Sunday 26 June 2022 07:30 3

Rinadena Falls is one of Tasmania's best kept secrets. This stunning waterfall is encased in gorgeous World Heritage protected Forest, and is the reward you receive after approximately 2 hours of walking.

Situated on the north-east side of Walls of Jerusalem National Park, your walk begins from Little Fisher Road 

Hopefully we have a good flow of water

Category Image Meander Falls This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 09 July 2022 07:30 4

Meander Falls are usually worth a visit in winter. Icy, frozen falls look amazing. Fingers crossed for cold weather and a bit of snow.  Approximately 10kms with over 400m climb, expect 5-6 hours return. 

Category Image PCT Working Bee This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Sunday 10 July 2022 08:00 3

As winter is with us the working bees will more than likely be closer to the coast, especially with shorter daylight hours. Come join us for an outing, with some gentle exercise along the way.

Category Image North East Car Camp This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 16 July 2022 07:30 4

The intention is to go where the weather is more mild and hopefully with no rain. I would like to do several small walks up to the tops of some mountains in the NE part of Tassie. We will camp at our cars in some of the free camping areas that are around and will have a nice fire to sit around in the evening times.

Category Image Mount Mongomery This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 23 July 2022 09:45 3

This walk is designed to beat the high petrol prices so all walkers are asked to catch the Merseylink Bus from the bus stops in Rooke St Devonport, Wongi Lane Ulverstone and Cattley St Burnie. Please catch the 9.00 am bus from both Devonport and Burnie.  Bus 708 Depart Burnie 9.00, Arrive  Penguin 9.18 am. Feeder buses from Wynyard and Emu Heights.

We will meet in Penguin then walk and climb to Mt Montgomery for our lunch stop. After lunch we will retrace our steps to Penguin and sample the bakery before catching the bus home. This is a great opportunity to be on a NWWC walk using public transport.

Category Image Lake Poa This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Sunday 31 July 2022 07:00 4

Lake Poa is a pretty little lake just past lake Myrtle, it is a lovely walk through a variety of different vegetations. We will start at the Lake Bill track which is quite steep, so we will warm up quickly. We will leave the track just past Lake Myrtle, so expect some off track walking through low alpine scrub. 

Category Image Mt Rufus & Mt King William 1 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 06 August 2022 07:30 4

A weekend based at Lake St Clair to climb Mt Rufus & Mt King William 1. Should be some snow.  Lake St Clair accommodation includes cabins, bunk house & camping options. Medium/moderate walks but prepare for snow and cold. The road conditions may be a factor. Text me on 0428 451 528

Category Image Quamby Bluff This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Sunday 07 August 2022 07:30 3

From a quick scan of previous Walkers, I found that Quamby Bluff hasn't been offered as a day walk on the published program since December 2017 so it's probably time for it to be there again.  It is a fairly short and straight forward walk (starting from the Lake Highway) that involves a bit of scrambling over scree.  On a clear day the 360 degree panorama from the summit plateau is quite spectacular, so join me and see it for yourself.

Category Image Snowshoeing Surprise This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 13 August 2022 07:00 3

The annual combined NWWC-LWC “Snowshoeing Surprise” returns for its fourth iteration. Assuming that we get good snowfalls every two years then this year should be great. As previously, the “Surprise” is that I won’t decide where we are going and what time we’ll start until probably just a few days before the trip date when we’ll have a better idea as to where the best snow and likely weather conditions exist. Perhaps it’ll be to Cradle, the Central Plateau, the Walls or the Ben. Beginner snowshoe users are welcome – if you don’t have your own pair maybe you could borrow some from a friend. Alternatively, they can be hired from both Paddy Pallin and Aspire Adventure Equipment in Launceston (contact me for details).

Category Image Anniversary Bay Loop This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Sunday 14 August 2022 08:00 3

A pleasant and relatively easy stroll at Rocky Cape National Park. Proposing to walk from Sisters Beach along the inland track to Anniversary Bay with a couple of side trips along the way to Broadview Hill and Doone Falls. I'm intending to be at Anniversary Bay for lunch before heading along the beach (tide permitting) to pick up the track to Banksia Grove and thence back to Sisters Beach. Unfortunately high tide is around 1pm or so which may - or may not - be an issue for the beach section of the walk. We'll see. Hopefully we won't have too many people swept out to sea. ?.

Category Image Dixons Track This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 20 August 2022 07:00 4

Dixons Track follows Staggs Creek from the Meander Falls carpark up to the plateau. It is a pretty track and sheltered for a good winter's leg stretch. If visibility is good and the weather conditions kind we will walk over to one of the pretty tarns on the plateau for lunch, so come prepared for some off track walking and the possibility of cold conditions.

Category Image The Walls of Jerusalem in the Snow This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 27 August 2022 07:30 4

I want to walk up into the Walls and camp in the Snow again. So hopefully we get some snow and do just that. There are several options on where to camp and depending on how much snow there is will determine where we camp. If there is only a small amount of snow and the weather is nice I would like to camp at the East end of Lake Ball. If you would like to test out your winter gear then come and join me for a night in the Walls of Jerusalem. 

Category Image Lady Lake Hut This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Wednesday 31 August 2022 08:00 3

Meet at 8am York St Latrobe and drive via Dairy Plains and Western Creek to Westrope Road and the start of the Higgs Track.  The walk takes about 2 hours of up with a morning tea stop on the way!  Rug up and good gear is required as on reaching the plateau it can either be very cold or turn cold very quickly!  We will have a look around Lady Lake before heading to the Hut for a well earned lunch inside sitting in an armchair or out on the verandah, depending on what weather we get!

Ring in on the Sunday night please!

This is another walk in one of my favourite local areas; the Meander Forest Reserve.  As with most walks in this region, it features nice rainforest, crystal clear creeks, small waterfalls and hopefully superb views from the alpine plateau that forms the summit.  There is a little scree to negotiate but it is not a long walk so there will be plenty of time to enjoy the whole experience.

Category Image Arm River Outdoor Education Centre & Day Walks This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saturday 10 September 2022 07:30 3

We'll be using the Arm River Outdoor Education Centre as a base "camp" for day walks in the area. Paula will be in the left hand seat for this trip so we'll come up with some suitable day trips depending on numbers and ability. The Centre has been booked for 3 nights but you don't have to come for the entire time - up to you. Accommodation will be a choice of dormitory with bunks and mattresses, camping or campervan. (BYO campervan - just to be crystal). Costs are: $15.40 per person per night in the dormitory. $5.50 per person per night if you're camping or campervanning (is that a word?). The place has electricity, hot showers, a stove and a fridge. You have to bring all cooking utensils, plates, cutlery etc plus sleeping bags or whatever. And yourself - you'd have to be a bit daft to forget yourself dontcha think?

Olegas Bluff is on the Southern end of the Prince of Wales Range. I previously visited Olegas Bluff in 2003. It was scrubby; I expect it to be now very scrubby. The Denison River must be forded near the entrance to Marriotts Gorge; please be aware of this risk. The walk used to be three or four days, but due to the anticipated extra scrub, I have allowed six days. Please text me on 0428 451 528.
