Great Walks in the South

There are many great destinations to explore within the Huon Valley, and further afield around Hobart and throughout the Southern region. Start exploring with a few of our favourite places.

Hartz Peak

This relatively accessible peak in the Hartz Mountain National Park takes you through a landscape carved by glaciers.

Mount Wellington

Visiting kunanyi/Mt Wellington is one of the best things to do in Hobart, no matter what time of year. You can drive to the summit by car or, alternatively, there are a number of very beautiful tracks that you can walk, climb and explore.

Mount Field

Mount Field National Park is one of Tasmania’s oldest national parks and is also one of its most diverse. Spectacular glaciated landscapes with a stunning range of flora compete for attention with cascading waterfalls, including the breathtaking, three-tiered Russell Falls - arguably one of the most impressive waterfalls in Tasmania.


Far South

Tahune Airwalk

This stunning treetop walkway gives you a bird’s-eye view of the forest as you walk 20m above the forest floor. The climax is a steel viewing point cantilevered nearly 50m above the ground, and overlooking the rushing waters of the Picton and the Huon rivers.


Bruny Island

Labillardiere Peninsula

This is a delightful, long and varied walk around the perimeter of the picturesque Labillardiere Peninsula on Bruny Island. It features constant coastal and mountain views, stretches of long sandy beach, and quiet sheltered bays.


South West Snowy range

Lake Skinner Track

The Lake Skinner track is a solid, gradual climb through forest that transitions to a completely different alpine environment above the tree line. The track leads upward through a lovely mossy forest of teatree, eucalypt, and myrtle, then sidles a hill to make a moderate climb to Lake Skinner’s outlet, Falls Rivulet.
