Explore the most popular walking trails in Tasmania with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Breathtaking walk with plenty of small tracks around the lake with great spots for photos, and taking in the views. Some stair sections which all kids could easily navigate, we took our 4, 6 and 8 year olds kids who loved it. Rainforests, plenty of changes in vegetation and spotted an echidna today too.

If you take this path in a clockwise direction, the return leg is fairly feature/view-less. Some spectacular views of the peninsular and Recherche Bay on the way out. Easy path out, single track (through bracken) on the way back.

Unbelievable hike! Took us 7 nights and 8 days starting in melaleuca and ending at cockle creek. We got very lucky with weather and because of that we lucked out with some wildlife, like the spotted tailed quoll and most of the endemic birds! The days over the passes are pretty tough though so be ready for a challenge. I would recommend camping as close as you can to the base of the iron range before going over (Louisa River). Would highly recommend this hike to people who want remote wilderness and some unbelievable beaches along the way.

Very poorly marked. Done the Split Rock Track and was very keen to continue on to the falls. Didn't realize we had to go back and follow a different trail to do so. Followed the red arrows for 2 hours and ended up in a massive expanse of rock with a random red arrow pointing ahead and no other ones to follow. Turned around and came back too exhausted to continue to the falls where we should have turned. Hard and challenging hike and even though we never got to our destination we would definitely come back and try again. Do recommend reading your map well beforehand

Wonderful trek with beautiful views. Trek very well maintained. Light traffic when we walked.

not for the faint hearted. but worth every step/scramble up the side of the mountain.

An easy but long walk. Beautiful views and lovely wildflowers in December.

Amazing lookout, family friendly track. Well signed and breath taking views.

easy traileri, not much of a fall

The rocks are relatively slick and not super grippy toward top. Also gets pretty crowded even on weekday around 9:30 am. Bring some bug spray for mozzies at the start.

not for kids.

Great view. Not a ‘casual’ stroll as some found to their detriment. Dress for sweating as the stair climb is a workout even for the fittest people.

Husband says best coastline views he’s ever seen. A really beautiful walk. I’d suggest long pants or gaiters for walking through the low scrub.

Challenging walk. but well worth it.

A nice track to walk...can be steep steps in sections..take plenty of water on hot days. Amazing view when at the lookout.

Wish we could capture the clean air here!
The fern rainforest was breathtaking before you emerge to take in the impressive 90m falls.
Well beaten track and some lovely log benches along the way for rest stops. Family friendly.

Beautiful. Good swim spot but cold. Worth it

Family friendly, nice and flat with best waterfall in tas.

Nice coastal walk. Trek well maintained and an easy walk with no steep inclines. A few areas not sign posted.

Loved this walk. Great views

beautiful scenery with lots of options for hiking

Suggest doing this walk clockwise - allows you to enjoy short rests to take in the great views while climbing up along the coast, then enjoy the downhill through the inland section of the trail.
Wear good shoes as is quite steep and slippery along the cliff edge.

Awesome circuit walk to celebrate the New Year!
We started early to avoid the heat/crowds and walked clockwise. There are lots of steps down to Wineglass Bay beach from the lookout, so walking the other way would be more difficult.
Take plenty of water - the 1L per person recommendation at the trailhead would be insufficient for most people, particularly later in the day.
Also keep a lookout for snakes. We came across 3 within 1 hour and were warned of another by hikers coming the other way. So tread carefully and wear enclosed shoes.

Breath taking views, and ever-changing environments. I GPS tracked the entire walk which was actually 50km total.

A good solid walk.
My Master 8 manages fine.
But wear proper boots on the Zig-Zag track and be prepared for steep inclines which are slippy when wet.

Crescent Bay is 1 of the most beautiful beaches in Tasmania. The sand dunes are HUUUUGE (take a bodyboard for some serious fun)
I wouldn’t recommend swimming at this beach as it’s unpatrolled & has some very strong currents with some steep drop offs.
Great fishing!!
The walk to Mt Brown is fairly easy, & you’re rewarded with some of the most stunning views of the Tasman Peninsula :)
If you have a spare hour, make your way along to the Maingon blowhole. But be careful as it’s not fenced & theres no warning it’s coming up but you can hear the roar of it 100mtrs away :) Keep a close eye on your little ones :)
Most of all.... enjoy :)

Stunning scenery. One of my favourite places in Australia.
