Single Day Hiking Lewisham to Dodges Ferry Viv Evans
Register here
Wednesday 07 April 2021 09:30 Easy
This is a lovely beach and cliff top walk starting at the Lewisham boat ramp. From here we head along the coast to Okines Beach, depending on tides we may be able to walk along the beach for some of the walk. We will have morning tea either on the beach or at the shelter near the Dodges Ferry Community Centre. From Okines Beach we continue on to the beach at Dodges Ferry where we will have lunch, either on the beach or at the local picnic area.  Weather permitting you could have a swim at Dodges Ferry.
Single Day Hiking Curio Bay from White Beach Geoff Buckman
Register here
Thursday 08 April 2021 08:00 Medium
This walk is to Curio Bay which is not far from the Club destination of Tumbledown Point on the Tasman Peninsula. We shall carpool from Sorell to White Beach after which an inland route will be walked which includes part of the Tasman National Park. Tracks and trails in this area are generally good, There is some climbing at the start of the walk. Nearer to Curio Bay, the track is somewhat overgrown and there are also jack jumper nests to avoid. The route back will partly use the well-known coastal route. Leaders retain the right to alter the route if deemed necessary. Trails, bush tracks & local views will provide considerable diversity for walkers. The route chosen avoids need for a further car shuffle as we shall start and finish at the same spot. The round walk should take about 4.5 hours and approx.10 kms. A reasonable standard of fitness is required for the walk.
Overnight - multi-day Southwest Bushwalk Simon Kendrick
Register here
Saturday 10 April 2021 06:00 Hard

I've selected nine days to either allow some flexibilty in our start date or maybe to allow for a nine day bushwalk. With weather forecasts always being a factor I'm also proposing up to four trips;

1. Southern Ranges Traverse visiting The Hippo, Moonlight Ridge Highpoint, La Perouse, Pindars Peak, Wylie, Victoria Cross and Precipitous Bluff.

2. Frankland Range Traverse

3. Du Cane Range Traverse and environs.

4. A creative route possibly involving any of Goulds Sugarloaf, Cuvier, Manfred, The Guardians, Horizontal Hill plus whatever else makes some kind of sense at the time.

The final choice of location to be made by the group, weather forecasts and such other factors as may be relevant. Applicants must be members of the Pandani Bushwalking Club and have previously walked with me in an extended Alpine Daywalk or multi-day Bushwalk.

Single Day Hiking Sandspit River Greg Robertson
Register here
Saturday 10 April 2021 09:00 Easy - Medium
The walk starts from the Sandspit Reserve in Wielangta Road and follows the former Wielangta tramway. I did the walk in February and the track has been cleared, with only a couple of fallen trees to climb over and under. 
There is a creek crossing and depending on previous rainfall, we may get wet feet. Similarly, there will be a few shallow boggy spots, but generally the track is good. It is an out and back walk, mostly level with a small hill on our return to the car park.
 
Single Day Hiking Cape Surville & MacGregor Peak Peter Tuft
Register here
Tuesday 13 April 2021 08:00 Medium - Hard

There is an easy vehicle track past MacGregor Peak to Deep Glen Bay and it’s rumoured that one can continue on to reach Cape Surville. If that doesn’t work out we may head down to Deep Glen Bay instead (where the crew of the sunken Blythe Star finally came ashore). On the way back we’ll leave the vehicle track to climb over MacGregor Peak. This walk is semi-exploratory - we’ve done previously done some but not all of it.

Category Image Inverawe Native Garden and lunch Viv Evans

Wednesday 14 April 2021 10:30 Easy

Something a little different this month, a good suggestion from a fellow walker that we have a look around the native gardens behind the Margate train.  I'm sure we have all seen the sign but how many of us have actually looked around the 22 acres of gardens.  After a leisurely walk around the gardens we will have lunch at either the Pancake Train or Brookfield, depending on numbers.  The entrance fee for the gardens is $12.00 or $10.00 concession.  You will then need money for lunch.

 

Single Day Hiking Weilangta Forest Lee McLean
Register here
Thursday 15 April 2021 08:30 Easy - Medium
After meeting at Station St, Sorell at 830am, we will car pool to start of walk, about 70Km  drive with about 15Km gravel. Regroup at Orford before heading south.(Road up from Copping makes a shorter drive, with the gravel section slightly rougher, but manageable,)
We will begin walk from the remains of the old timber town, Weilangta, ("Tall trees") where there is a small grave of a child who was killed in an explosion. The timber mill operated from 1911 to 1924 with cut timber carted on trams down to the coast at Rheban.
The walk passes through some beautiful rain forest and tree ferns and climbs up to more open forest near the Sandspit Reserve Picnic Area where we will stop for lunch before returning to the cars by the same route. Total distance about 8Kms, with ascent about 230m along well defined track.Currently(March) some trees across track, but navigable with a bit of bushbashing.
As it is quite a short walk, we may have time to drive to Earlham for short stroll along the beach to Sandy Lagoon, with possibility to see pelicans, swans, terns, dotterels, oyster catchers, gulls etc. But probably not our rare King Penguin visitor!
Coffee at Earlham, or Orford.
Single Day Hiking Florentine Peak Walk Frank van Ravels
Register here
Saturday 17 April 2021 06:30 Medium - Hard We will start at Lake Dobson car park and head up the Rodway Range, then descend through the boulder field following the Mt Field West trail, until reaching the Petersen Memorial Hut and then heading to Clemes Tarn.  We leave the track and head for Florentine Peak off track (low vegetation) until we pick up another pad to the Peak. There is some rock hopping and a short steepish up to get to the plateau on top and from there it is off track to the summit but again negotiating low vegetation. On a sunny day expect great views to the south west peaks. We will return via the same route.

Register here
Sunday 18 April 2021 10:00 Easy
We start walk on a back road before the Oast House (near boat ramp) and then wander around the Wetlands area following the Derwent River heading towards The Esplanade (there are lots of steps down onto the Esplanade).

Single Day Hiking Nierinna Creek Track Margeret Brocklehurst
Register here
Thursday 22 April 2021 10:00 Easy - Medium

Meeting spot will be Burnaby Drive. Turn onto Sandfly Road just before Margate, then left turn onto Nierinna Road near the church, then first right into  Burnaby Drive.

Single Day Hiking Magical Mystery Tour of Wellington Lower Slopes Christine Wilson
Register here
Sunday 02 May 2021 09:30 Medium
In the early 20th century, beautiful huts were built by various organisations, such as the Boogaloo Boys (!) on the lower slopes of Mt Wellington, especially on Cascade Brewery land. The aim of this walk is to visit some of these sites and learn about the hut ruins, lairs and quarries we'll view. Chris and Christine will provide information and photographs. This walk is based on one run by the wonderful Rosie Bruce and follows little used tracks and pads for the most part. If the number limit is reached on this walk, please contact either Chris W or Christine A and we will consider running a second walk on this program or the next.

Single Day Hiking Neika to Ferntree and back Lynne Maher
Register here
Wednesday 05 May 2021 10:00 Easy
We will walk the pipeline track, which, after a couple of hundred metres of gentle uphill, is mostly level and shady with some lovely eucalypts, tree ferns and small creeks. We will make the short diversion to Silver Falls, if the group wishes; this does involve a bit of a hill but the falls are rather lovely. There is an option of coffee or a cold drink or lunch at Ferntree Tavern, before we return to Neika.This is being offered as a longer return walk due to current guidance about car pooling. If it is too long for a Wednesday walk, I can make it shorter. Or people may make their own arrangements to leave a vehicle at Fern Tree for a one way walk.

Register here
Thursday 06 May 2021 09:30 Medium We will walk up the Pinnacle Track and then Organ Pipe Track to the Chalet for morning Tea.  After morning tea we will cross the road and go down The Old Hobartians Track a short way, then branch off to the Hunters Track tacking us down to Junction Cabin for lunch.

Single Day Hiking Deep Glen Bay Frank van Ravels
Register here
Tuesday 11 May 2021 07:30 Medium A very interesting walk because of the history associated with Deep Glen Bay involving the rescue of survivors from the Blythe Star in 1973. A tragic and heroic story of survival at sea for 11 days and the incident also led to 3 deaths. The walk involves hiking along old forestry roads as we skirt around MacGregors Peak before off track walking along a taped route which follows the Deep Glen Creek. This part of the walk features some very large man ferns. The Bay itself has dramatic sea cliffs.
Single Day Hiking Coal River Tier Bob Donovan
Register here
Tuesday 11 May 2021 09:00 Medium

With thanks to Rob Hill.

This walk, that is through private properties ,is different to most being mostly along an exposed undulating ridge with unrestricted views all around. After a short car shuttle the walk begins with a gradual ascent of around 350m that will take us over an hour or two until we reach the first plateau of the tier. There are many lovely trees on parts of the ridge as well as countless small rocks that are not difficult to avoid. We can expect to encounter several wallaby's and perhaps an eagle.

At some point after lunch we will tackle the short, and at times, steepish decent that leads to farmland and the downhill stroll to our cars. Hopefully we will be able to enjoy a coffee at Wattlebanks Cafe in Richmond before heading home.

For this particular walk it is essential that all Boots, Gaiters and Poles are first scrubbed with disinfectant as the farmers are concerned about the spread of serrated tussock. I will have some disinfectant in case anyone forgets.

Single Day Hiking Tolman Hill Ramble Viv Evans
Register here
Thursday 13 May 2021 09:30 Medium

Join me on a ramble around the area from Tolman’s Hill to Ridgeway Dam and beyond.  We commence our walk from Tolman’s Hill and wind our way around various tracks and fire trails ending up at Ridgeway Dam.  From there we will continue on other tracks heading towards the Pipeline and back to our cars.  Be prepared for some reasonably steep, slippery sections on this walk.  With our cars at Davey Street, C3 will be a possible spot for coffee after.

Single Day Hiking The Sentinels Urszula Stanny
Register here
Saturday 15 May 2021 07:30 Hard

This is a classic South West mountain with an intense climb from the start with a total ascent of 640m. Be prepared for a log river crossing, steep scrambling up a gully and a slightly airy ridgeline. On a clear day there are magnificent views in all directions and well worth the challenge of getting there.

I did this walk 2 1/2 years ago (before the 2018-19 SW fires) and don’t plan to pre-walk it again, so a bit of patience during navigation would be an asset

Single Day Hiking Parsons Track via Hills Hut to Haberles Hut Belinda Jefferies
Register here
Saturday 15 May 2021 08:00 Medium

Parsons Track starts at Caveside, 10 minutes south of Mole Creek. Like so many walk tracks in the area, it was not created for the enjoyment of bushwalkers but has been developed and redeveloped over several generations by the families of early settlers, along with mountain huts constructed as shelters for hunters, trappers and snarers, and timber getters.

The strong attachment of current members of those families and others is the reason they are maintained to this day and, in the case of Parsons Track, have the benefit of signage at the various points of interest.

We will be visiting the recently restored Hills Logging Hut about 1.5 hours up the track. This project has been part of the Mountain Huts Preservation Society's good works to preserve built heritage in the area. We will travel further up the track to visit Haberles Hut.
Haberles Hut was built around 1931 by Bill Haberle and his sons Gordon and Bill during the Great Depression and used when snaring and trapping in the area. The hut fell into disrepair and was restored by the Deloraine Walking Club under the leadership of Charles Crowden over a 17 month period from June 1981 until October 1982.
Walkers must be able to travel to Mole Creek on Friday night and stay at Maccas Shed, our private property in Mole Creek. You are welcome to stay on Saturday night or travel back to Hobart at the completion of the walk. Be warned - we may put you to work if you choose to stay!
 
Single Day Hiking Jordan Gorge near Oatlands Christine Wilson
Register here
Sunday 16 May 2021 08:30 Medium
Join me for a walk through the Jordan Gorge, a pretty sandstone gorge on private land. At this point the river flows through an area of sandstone cliffs and caves  with some deep pools formed by the river itself. Be prepared for a number of river crossings which may involve wet feet. Trekking poles and gaiters recommended. This is a circuit walk. We will return to the cars via old tracks with the odd interesting ruin to explore. 
Single Day Hiking Mt Hobbs and Split Rock Susan Gardner
Register here
Tuesday 18 May 2021 08:30 Medium We start on a pleasant farm track just short of Woodsdale and walk gradually uphill through some paddocks before heading into the bush. After walking amongst the dogwoods we come out on a road which leads to towers on Mt. Hobbs. A little further on we then head into the bush towards a rock formation which has a 50m split. Those who wish can drop down and walk along this. Be warned, it is a tight squeeze! Lots of fun though. Getting out is difficult but there will be people to help. Then a short walk up the road to Mt. Hobbs and great views all around. The way back is steeply downhill and back to the farm track.
Single Day Hiking Berriedale Reserve to Cadbury Estate Rosemary Bruce

Single Day Hiking Allens Rivulet Rural Ramble Frank van Ravels
Register here
Thursday 20 May 2021 09:30 Easy - Medium This is a gentle wander around the Sandfly and Allens Rivulet areas. It takes in a rural landscape and involves walking both of the short Allens Rivulet tracks as well as walking on the road shoulders of both gravel and bitumen roads, You get to see the cliffs on the North West Bay River as well as the Allens Rivulet cliffs. Hear about some of the history of Sandfly and you may even get to see your Vice-Presidents farmlet. You might even get a chance to pat a horse and if you bring an apple or carrot feed a horse! To start the walk we will park at the Sandfly memorial oval which is just past the Sandfly Hall on the left side of Sandfly Road.
Single Day Hiking Mt Eliza and Eliza Bluff Isabel Goodfellow
Register here
Saturday 22 May 2021 06:30 Medium - Hard
A chance to explore the less-visited Eliza Bluff, subject to the area reopening (word on the street is it is due to reopen. If it doesn't I will plan an alternative). We start with the long, long climb up Mt Eliza, with a nice rest at the hut and atop Eliza. We then continue along the plateau on the Mt Anne track, before heading out off track to the Bluff. From Eliza Bluff we will have dramatic views to Lake Judd directly below us. We will explore the bluff and the plateau before retracing our steps.
Single Day Hiking Cascade to Myrtle Gully Viv Evans
Register here
Saturday 22 May 2021 09:30 Easy - Medium We will commence our walk at the Cascade Brewery and head up to the start of the Myrtle Gully track where we will have morning tea.  From there we climb up the Myrtle Gully track to Junction Cabin.  This is a reasonable climb and can be slippery on some of the steps.  We will have lunch at Junction Cabin before heading back down to our car, using using a similar route with maybe a slight variation.
Single Day Hiking Mt Montagu from Thark Ridge Urszula Stanny
Register here
Tuesday 25 May 2021 08:30 Medium

We’ll walk along the Thark Ridge track which is quite well marked. Eventually it turns into an overgrown 4WD track and some way along this there are cairns that mark the turn off to the top of Mt Montagu. The track to the pinnacle is quite steep but quite well marked. We’ll return the way we came in.

If the weather is kind we’ll see views over the Derwent River, Huon Valley and some of the peaks around Mt Wellington.

I did a reccie in early March 2020 and found the track very overgrown & felt like scrub bashing. It had rained earlier that week and I ended up walking on track that had turned to creeks and I got drenched from the scrub before resorting to pulling on waterproof pants. If only I’d put them on earlier! The wet made for some slippery sections past the turn off to the top. So fingers crossed for a dry spell before the walk.

Single Day Hiking Short Walk with Lunch Viv Evans
Register here
Wednesday 26 May 2021 10:30 Easy We will park at the Fern Tree car park and walk down the Pipeline track to Halls Saddle.  From there we head up to Bracken Lane and on to Fern Tree where we will have lunch at the Tavern.  Time and energy permitting we could go past Silver Falls.

Single Day Hiking Lichen Hill and Clemes Peak Geoff Buckman
Register here
Saturday 29 May 2021 08:30 Medium
Starting from Station Lane Sorell, we shall drive to the Waterfall Bay car park. Leaving one car, we shall car shuffle via some back roads to the start of the Lichen Track.

Continuing on to Tatnells Hill, we shall descend to a right hand junction then to Clemes Peak for lunch. . There are excellent views from the summit of Clemes Peak and looking back to the southwest you will be able to see the summit of Tatnell's Hill the turning point for this walk. Then we return to Waterfall Bay using a steep and somewhat rough track from Clemes. Back at the Waterfall Bay car park walkers can view the sights while the drivers are driven back to collect their vehicles. If we finish early enough, possibly a stop at Bangor for drinks on the way home.
Single Day Hiking Bluff River Gorge Christine Wilson
Register here
Tuesday 01 June 2021 08:30 Medium Surefootedness is required on parts of this circuit walk. The Gorge's narrow track passes close to spectacular sandstone caves and outcrops of varying shapes, sizes, intricate designs and delightful colours, with much evidence of animal life. Part of the walk is on the floor of the gorge passing many permanent water holes. There are two river crossings, which may be slippery and wet after rain (trekking poles desirable)  and there are 2 steep descents to the floor of the Gorge and a steep ascent to the pad on the eastern side of the river. At this time of the year the floor of the gorge could be a bit icy. Stinging nettles are prolific in parts - gardening gloves and long trousers are recommended. Approx 2 hours return driving from Hobart's eastern shore.

Single Day Hiking Creekton Falls (Again!) Belinda Jefferies
Register here
Saturday 05 June 2021 08:00 Medium
Creekton Falls is a stunning waterfall situated in the Southwest National Park in Southern Tasmania, with a height of about 50 metres. This popular walk wa held in January but there is likely to be more water at this time of the year. Though being shorter than nearby Adamsons Falls it is equally as impressive. There are a number of access routes you can take to reach Creekton Falls. We will opt for the walk from Adamsons Falls and loop back to Duckhole Lake From Adamsons FallsThe hike to Creekton Falls commences on Adamsons Falls Track and from the carpark a 1 hour hike will take you directly to Adamsons Falls. In front of the main waterfall, the start of the makeshift track to Creekton Falls begins, and you will have to cross the creek carefully to continue your walk. Orange tape tied to trees will guide us on a lengthy, difficult walk through very dense forest to Creekton Falls. The track is, for the most part, non-existant between Adamsons Falls and Creekton Falls, and the route has quite a few obstructions, such as fallen trees, that will need to be negotiated. The hike is slow, and despite the relatively short distance between the two waterfalls, it will take at least 1.5 hours to reach Creekton Falls from Adamsons Falls. Bring a change of clothes for the return car journey.
Single Day Hiking A meander on the lower slopes of kunanyi/Mt Wellington John Counsell

Tuesday 08 June 2021 10:00 Easy - Medium
A shortish meander on the lower slopes of "The Mountain".

Register here
Saturday 12 June 2021 06:00 Medium

This will be a three day walk, camping at the Scott Kilvert Hut, and climbing Barn Bluff on Sunday.

On Saturday we will drive to Cradle Mtn and our walk route will depend on whether access to Dove Lake is allowed. We will walk via Hanson Peak to the Scott Kilvert Hut. Tents will be required as hut access will not be guaranteed. Leaving full packs behind on day 2 we will climb Barn Bluff and return to Scott Kilvert Hut. On Monday we will walk to Kitchen Hut and return to either Dove Lake or Ronney Creek. 

Single Day Hiking Gunners Quoin Christine Anderson
Register here
Sunday 13 June 2021 09:00 Medium

Its good to have acess to Risdon Brook Reservoir again from which to enjoy a Winter walk to Gunners Quoin which is part of the Meehan Range. This is a moderate but fairly continuous climb to the peak , otherwise its a fairly straight forward walk in open bushland with views of the Derwent River and surrounding area at the top. We may return via Madman's Hill depending on the day.
