    Tassie 2020

    Only just finished going through photos, had thousands lol, but recently spent two weeks in Tassie, mostly the west in January, was wicked. . .

    Started at Hartz Mountains in the south east. Was very lucky with the weather was absolutely beautiful, spent the day doing the walk up the top stunning spot. .

    Next day took the scenic route across to near Derwent Bridge, turned into a bit of an adventure . . .

    00145-2.jpg

    Tried a track that was marked on Hema that cut across to the Stix Valley road but was pretty overgrown . . .

    00147-2.jpg

    00152-2.jpg

    00149-2.jpg

    Ended up at a crossing of the Stix river that was defiantly not crossable, no solo anyway. . . Anyway beautiful spot and no riff raff down here. .

    00150-2.jpg

    Back tracked and finally made it out after hitting locked gates coming out of the pine plantations and following a maze of roads. Cruised through the Sitx valley and stopped at the tall trees conservation reserve. .

    00157-2.jpg

    00158-2.jpg

    00164-2.jpg

    Continued though the Florentine Valley that runs behind Mt Field. Nearly came out the other side and hit a road closed sign. . . ARRRGH . .Thought bugger it drove around it and came across two dudes doing some bridge work, asked if i could drive though and let us, bloody champions would have been at least a few hours to go around.

    Derwent River just below Lake Repulse

    00173-2.jpg

    Crazy these old wooden pipes amazing the labor going into these.

    00174-2.jpg

    Met up with MB and co and camped at Laughing Jack Lagoon just out of Derwent Bridge, nice little spot. Smokey day from Vic and Tas fires. .

    Pretty scenic drive and ends up not far from the Franklin river with a very steep walk down to it down the old haulage road.

    Cool track following an old tramway which there must have been so many back in the day. Seemed to be struggling with traction on this track till i worked out the hubs weren't locked lol. .

    Great to see you got down to the Franklin. We couldn't get the keys to the gate as the rangers were all away on a group hike somewhere. Did you get to see the helipad with 'No Dam' still painted on it? We di the walk along the Bird River into Pillinger instead & loved it. Loved our time in Trial Harbour too. Did the Montezuma Falls track by ourselves - Sh*tting myself a couple of times. Didn't take any pics until we got to the falls, so great to see yours of the track. The west coast of Tassie is a great part of the world & your photos do it justice. Thanks for sharing.

    Back out through Ring River track. Was a great track plain sailing in the dry but would be different story in the wet. .

    Back into camp after restocking and doing some washing in sunny Zeehan. Headed up to the spray tunnel in the evening (shoulda stayed in Zeehan really) to check out the glow worms, was pretty impressive. .
