Day and Overnight Walks

Here’s where you’ll find all the musings from my various day trips and ‘quick overnighters’. I love getting out for a quick hike or run around Tassie.

Mt Patrick – May 14, 2018

Mt Patrick – May 14, 2018

With all the roadworks on the Midlands Highway, I had been making my regular drive to Hobart a bit more scenic by driving south via Highland Lakes Road. On this midweek trip, I figured I had enough time to make a quick jaunt up Mt Patrick beside Arthur's Lake (and...

Tower Hills (East and West Towers)

Tower Hills (East and West Towers)

I had been thinking about the 'two towers' for some time and I must say, with some trepidation. Mates had done the peaks previously and didn't describe them favourably. By all accounts, getting out to the West Tower was a scrub bash in an area that didn't particularly...

I had a free weekday morning, so after school drop offs I hit the road and was on my way towards Poatina. After an hour I was at the start of the route up to Sandbanks Tier. It was a cool day, with drizzle rolling through but after about 5 minutes into the walk it...

Mt Victoria and Mt Albert

Mt Victoria and Mt Albert

Woolza and I found a quick window of opportunity to sneak out for one last summer mid-week overnighter. Thursday afternoon at about 4pm, we departed Launceston and headed to the North East via Targa through the forestry roads to start of the Mt Victoria track. We...
