Starting from the car park on Hartz Road, Southwest Tasmania, this walk leads to Arve Falls and back via the Arve Falls Track. Enjoy a short, leisurely walk through alpine herb fields and snow gum woodland as you follow the path of the Arve River in Hartz Mountains National Park. As you walk along the track, many information boards are explaining the local flora and fauna. The lookout at the end provides good views of the falls and the valley below. The falls aren't tall, but they have an impressive drop over the plateau's edge and overlooking the valley beneath. This is a popular picnic area, and it includes a large visitor shelter, toilet facilities, barbeques, chairs and tables. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the carpark at the end of Hartz Road, Hartz Mountains National Park, this walk leads to Hartz Pass and back via the Hartz Peak Track. The walk begins with few hundred metres of gradual climbing through scrubby bushland over rocky steps before opening up into the heathland. From here you have views of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, Mount Wellington, and Hartz Peak. The track at this section is well-constructed boardwalk, supporting you above the trickle of water running below. Roughly at the mid-point, there will be a sidetrack to your right directing you to Lake Esperance. This track takes you to the glacier-formed lake’s edge where seats are available. The main track continues over some easy ground until reaching Ladies Tarn, before climbing steeply through thick scrub towards Hartz Pass. The walk ends further along near Hartz Lake, where you can find a quiet spot to rest and appreciate the peaceful surroundings before returning by the same route. The ground around the lake shores can be damp and slippery underfoot, so exercise caution on this section. The sections of raised boardwalk on this trail can also become extremely slippery when covered in ice or snow. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
