Walls of Jerusalem

21 July 2016

This is the combined track of a 3-day walk we did in January ’16. It’s a bit dodgy because the GPS battery went flat on the West Wall.

We camped at Wild Dog Creek which is fine if you don’t mind queuing for the toilet and people squealing at 11pm because they’ve never seen a possum outside their tent before. Might look for somewhere a bit more private if I was to go in the middle of summer again.

Mt Wellington Walk

15 February 2015
Mt Wellington Walk

Lenah Valley to Junction Cabin via North South and Lenah Valley tracks. An easy-ish walk but a decent workout for an old fart like me. The junction is a cool place to stop for lunch, and sometimes make a decision to take one of the other tracks when you are feeling energetic.

North South track is easier on the way up as it is a shared bike track, therefore less steep. You do need to keep your eyes open in order to hop out of the way when riders come along.

Mt Field West Circuit

Mt Field West Circuit

How good is Tassie when places like this are practically on your doorstep? This is 3 days of walking, wish we could’ve stayed up there for 3 weeks. Campsites were at Twisted Tarn and Clemes. Next time we’ll figure out a way to include via Tarn Shelf.
