Are you looking for the best hikes in Tasmania? Mt Wellington is a hiking paradise, and tucked away on its western side is the fantastic Collins Bonnet walking trail. It’s […]
Mount Wellington and its soaring organ pipes are a Tasmanian icon. This loop walk links the Organ Pipes, Zig Zag track, Mt Wellington summit, and the Panorama track – creating the best day hike only minutes from central Hobart.
Quite simply, this bushwalk up the Needles is not only one of the best Hobart day walks, but one the best hikes in Tasmania full-stop! If you love hiking Tasmania then you’ve got to put the Needles on your bushwalking ‘to do’ list – just don’t tell anyone, ok? 😀
The hike to Pelverata Falls is the perfect choice for one of those days where you really need to get out of the house and stretch the legs, but aren’t feeling up to a half-day slog. This is one of those walks where we’d strongly recommend that you plan to do it after the rains, because a dry waterfall is simply a cliff right…?
The 4hr return walk to Cape Hauy will not only expose you to stunning panoramic views of the cape, but also north towards the Devil’s Arch and south towards Cape Pillar and Tasman Island. The sea cliffs of the Tasman Peninsular are the tallest in the world, and for that alone it would also be worth making the hike! Put it all together and you’ve got one very enjoyable day walk.
It is no exaggeration to say that this loop would have to be one of the best day walks you will find anywhere in Australia, if not the world!

One of Tasmania’s best day hikes. the Mt Field East loop winds its way through some stunning forests, moors and mountains. On a sunny day, particularly after fresh snow falls, this walk is absolutely magic!
