Full description
Enjoy one of Tasmania’s best short walks on this hike. Leave Hobart from the Hobart Travel and Information Centre at 8:20 AM and drive for an hour and a half along the wide and meandering Huon River, through apple and cherry orchards to Hartz Mountain National Park, a section of Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area. Enjoy morning tea, coffee and fruit along the way, while going over the map for the hike with your guide. Begin your walk with a stroll through gently undulating alpine plateau, before passing two alpine glacial lakes, the larger Lake Esperance and picturesque Ladies Tarn. On the way back, you may go for a swim (weather permitting). From the halfway point, Hartz Pass, you will enter the Dolerite Rock slopes. This section extends to the summit of Hartz peak and involves two steep sections with uneven terrain and some loose rocks to balance on. On the summit, be rewarded with 360 degree views, encompassing the Wellington Range, Federation Peak, Western and Eastern Arthur Range, Precipitous Bluff, Mount Field and many more, as well as the Huon river and the Southern Ocean to the south east. Then hike back along the returning track and stop for a picnic lunch by a lake or in a National Park shelter before returning to Hobart.
