Days to go: 4 Days 18 hours 49 minutes to go

Ritters Crag juts out from the Western Tiers giving views on a clear day of Warner Falls and Havelock Falls. It is in an interesting area giving a good view of the kilometres of fence line the old farmers went to so much trouble to build. We will start the walk at Pine Lake. It will mostly be off track through low alpine scrub.

Days to go: 4 Days 19 hours 49 minutes to go

We will leave Sheffield at 8:00am and then drive to the start of the track.  My aim is to camp near Dixons Kingdom and climb the surrounding peaks.  Hopefully the weather will be kind to us but be prepared for a cold night.

Days to go: 11 Days 20 hours 49 minutes to go

This is planned as a relaxed day of walking, with a bit of driving between destinations. First stop will be Lobster Falls, this is the only grade 3 part of the day, the other destinations are easy grade 2 walks. The walk into Lobster Falls is a bit steep in places and can be slippery. After visiting the falls, we head off to have a look at Alum Cliffs. This should take us through to lunch time which we will have at the picnic area at Wet Cave. From here we will head up the road and visit Westmoreland Falls. Depending on time left, on our return to Latrobe we have the option of stopping at the Henry Somerset Reserve to have an orchid hunt.

This will be the third time in 3 months that i have put this walk on the program with snow stopping the two previous attempts  so third time lucky i hope . Anyway Western Bluff is at the western end of the Tiers We will travel to Liena and drive up the northern part of Urks loop to the start of the track .It’s about a 4 km fairly steep uphill walk through some nice forest at the start then up through a valley to emerge on the plateau and walk another 3 km to the summit at 1420 m . it will be a very enjoyable day if the weather is kind .

Days to go: 15 Days 20 hours 49 minutes to go

Meet Ridgley at 9am and drive to Hampshire and onto the carpark off Kara Road.  Cross the Old Park River and follow the track up towards a 4wd road.  Follow this for 700m before commencing climb up through the bush towards the open section.  This next section follows some steep drop off areas so a good head for heights is called for.  On a good clear day the views are very worthwhile.  Join me for a good day in our great outdoors.  Fernglade will be our wet weather option.  Good walk for prospectives to gain fitness and experience.

02 Nov 2019 07:30AM - 12:00AM
Days to go: 18 Days 19 hours 19 minutes to go

This will be a car camping trip, most likely in the National Park campgrounds.  I have not done much walking in this area, so I'm keen to explore. My intention would be to visit Tarn Shelf, but there are several interesting walks of varying degrees of difficulty in the area.


Category Image PCT Working Bee
02 Nov 2019 07:30AM -
Days to go: 18 Days 19 hours 19 minutes to go

With the warmer walking season approaching there is plenty to do on the PCT in preparation. There are some really pretty sections close to the coast and we have started on these but need to complete the task. This isn’t a hard day out and as we are working on clearing the track the pace isn’t too great and it is very satisfying when you return back and admire what has been done. Depending on the weather and numbers the possible options are Mt Lorymer, Lobster Creek Tramway, Mt Lorymer to Adit Creek or Brookes Track to Black Bluff. Come along for a fun day out.


Category Image Gravelly Beach to Paper Beach
06 Nov 2019 09:00AM - 05:00PM
Days to go: 22 Days 20 hours 49 minutes to go

Meet at Exeter Bakery at 9am  for a nice coffee before heading along Gravelly Beach as far as Paper Beach and return.  We might even put a car or 2 there to ferry Walkers back.  I did the Paper Beach walk a long time ago with Helen Plaister so we will go for an explore of the Tamar River area.  There is a cafe called "Rileys on the River" at Paper Beach but only open friday to monday so we will miss out today.  Join me for a days outing.

Days to go: 26 Days 18 hours 49 minutes to go

You’ve no doubt driven over its lower slopes many times but have you touched its summit? The Mt Black walk is special; beautiful rainforest, a primeval mossy world to experience on the higher slopes as well as an amazing, and I would say unique, reminder of the early logging days to see. Of course on a clear day there are expansive 360° views.

Category Image Tyndall & Geike
16 Nov 2019 06:30AM - 12:00AM
Days to go: 32 Days 18 hours 19 minutes to go

Day 1: From the car park off Anthony Rd it will be the standard ascent up to the top. Visit Mt Tyndall before making our way to camp at either Lake Tyndall or the small tarn NE of the lake. Somewhere nice anyway.  Plans are then flexible. Maybe head out and do Geike in the afternoon. Day 2: Visit Geike if not done on the first day otherwise a general exploration of the area. I'm quite interested in sussing out the initial route to Sedgwick. Thence back down the hill and hit the frog and toad for home.

NOTE: The walk will not proceed if I deem the weather unsuitable.


Category Image South Esk from Longford Kayak
16 Nov 2019 10:00AM - 05:00PM
Days to go: 32 Days 21 hours 49 minutes to go

After tackling part of the North Esk in June it’s now time to turn our attention to part of the upper reaches of the South Esk. Arrive at the Longford boat ramp on the Macquarie River adjacent to the Longford Riverside Caravan Park, ready to start paddling at 10:00am. We’ll head downstream to connect with the South Esk and continue down to near the weir before turning around and following the South Esk along its very winding path as far as either we want to or are able to before heading back. Come along for another relaxing day. Note that I’ve also placed this trip on the Launceston Walking Club program – so meet some paddlers from another club.

19 Nov 2019 10:00AM - 05:00PM
Days to go: 35 Days 21 hours 49 minutes to go

Meet at Banjo's Campbell Town at 10am before continuing onto Cockle Creek.  Set up camp for next few days and have a good explore of the area, have never been that far south of Tasmania so am really looking forward to seeing!  I  would like to walk down to the coast for a look but will probably at this stage do as a return day walk.  We will also find a couple nearby tracks to explore.  Campers are most welcome but I will be in my trusty tent!Let me know by end of October please.

23 Nov 2019 06:30AM -
Days to go: 39 Days 18 hours 19 minutes to go

As per the Abels description. From Howards Rd we head up an old bulldozer track most of the way to the top. From the end of this track there is a walking track to the very top then untracked over the plateau to the summit. This is a 900m ascent over about 4500m.

NOTE: The walk will not proceed if I deem the weather unsuitable.

Category Image Junction Lake & Mts of Jupiter
29 Nov 2019 07:30AM - 05:00PM
Days to go: 45 Days 19 hours 19 minutes to go

We’ll commence walking from the very end of the Mersey Forest Road, cross Jacksons Creek and begin the climb through the myrtle forest to the top of the ridge overlooking Chapter Lake. The lake, with the adjacent Grail Falls should provide a good spot for lunch. From here we’ll follow the Moses Creek Track through the pleasant valley to Cloister Lagoon and then Mayfield Flats before arriving at Junction Lake where we’ll establish camp on the northern side.

The next day, carrying day packs, we’ll cross the Mersey River near the Junction Lake Hut and follow the cairned pad, climbing through eucalypt and then myrtle forest, to arrive at Lake Artemis. At this point we should be able to find another cairned route to the high point on the Mountains of Jupiter. The walking on the large alpine plateau, which is dotted with tarns and pools, is very easy and enjoyable and offers nice views of the Ling Roth Lakes, Chinamans Plains, Mts Spurling and Ida and a backdrop of many of the peaks in the vicinity of the southern end of the Overland Track.

On the last day we’ll take the Junction Lake Track to Lake Meston and then follow the Lake Myrtle Track to the north east end of Lake Myrtle. We’ll then have a choice of either the shorter route on the Jacksons Creek Track directly to the carpark or the longer route via Lake Bill and Blizzard Plain with a final few kilometres along the road. Either way, it’ll make for an excellent circuit.

The Circular Head Walking Club has invitated our club to join them on a combined walk from Sister's Beach to Rocky Cape return. Come along and meet them for a lovely leisurely day.

Days to go: 46 Days 19 hours 49 minutes to go

This will be the third working bee on the Cuvier Valley Track at Lake St Clair and will include a free Parks boat trip up the Lake.  We will walk towards Lake Petrarch working as we go and camp overnight at the Lake.  So full pack and gear required.  Please contact Rod Walker or Chris Dennis for further info.  Please come along and help tidy up our tracks, its great fun and you get to meet other Walkers from our other Clubs.


Category Image Pedder Paddle
01 Dec 2019 10:00AM - 12:00AM
Days to go: 47 Days 21 hours 49 minutes to go

The fires in January meant we were unable to access Lake Pedder, so this is my second attempt to spend five days paddling Pedder. The weather will determine our ultimate itinerary, but the plan is to launch from the northern end of the lake.


Category Image Castle Crag
07 Dec 2019 07:00AM - 05:00PM
Days to go: 53 Days 18 hours 49 minutes to go

I have always wanted to climb to the top of Castle Crag. We will access the walk via the Lees Paddocks and walk into Kia Ora from there on the first day. Next day climb the Crag and then camp a second night near Kia Ora or back down in the Paddocks. Then walk out the third day. The first day will be a long one and although there is a taped route the tree fall from the winter snow could slow us down up along Kia Ora Creek. The climb up onto the Crag is off track and bouldery. Also there may be some tricky rock negotiating. Please call me if you think that you are up for a challenging walk in some amazing mountain country.
