Great walk, was my first hike in Tasmania. The gate is locked now so can't park near the farm house as mentioned in the 100 walks in Tasmania book. There is alittle parking spot right near the gate that 1 car can use and still be out of the way else there is parking on the main road north of the turn off.
There was a team doing track work towards the end. They are creating rock steps just before the saddle towards the summit.
Easy at first but the last mile is rock climbing
Spectacular walk. Relentless climb up to Mt Eliza, but brilliant alpine moor walking on top. Some serious rock hopping as you approach the summit block with a non technical climb with some exposure.
I have also done it as part of the Mt Anne circuit, possibly the best high alpine walk in Australia
We walked from the bus stop in Churchill Av. It is steep climbing up through the gully, but out on the ridge is open easy walking.
It is a nice selection of native bushland so close to a capital city.
Enjoy a coffee at the Old Signal Station at the top, or there are free BBQs just near the gate.
