A Tasmanian bushwalking website

Mount Field East (circuit)

It was time to visit Mount Field again… but this time it was time to tackle something new: Mount Field East.

The weather was lovely, and the maps were waterproof.

Frenchman's Cap - December 2020

Frenchman's Cap lit by early morning sun

I have long wanted to walk to Frenchman’s Cap, I’ve just never been able to convince anyone to come with me.

And I couldn’t find anyone to come with me in December 2020 either, so I just went by myself. The weather forecast looked amazing. I had a weekend. Why not go?

Cape Hauy - 24 December 2016

The day was sunny, warm (some would say hot), and we were ready for a quick visit to one of Tasmania’s favourite capes, Cape Hauy! We’d stayed the night down on the Peninsula, so it was a quick drive down to the Fortescue Bay.

The Overland Track

A frozen lake with snow all around it
I did the Overland Track. It was good. I didn’t take many photos. There were too many clouds and many, many wombats.
