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.

Starting from Tahune Adventures at the end of Arve Road, Geeveston, this walk takes you along the Tahune AirWalk, a spectacular treetop walkway. Built amongst the treetops in the Huon River Valley, the Tahune Airwalk takes you high above the forest canopy. This stunning treetop walkway gives you a bird’s-eye view of the forest as you walk 20 to 30 metres above the forest floor. After crossing both the Picton and the Huon rivers by two swinging bridges, the journey concludes at a spectacular cantilevered platform sitting 50m above the riverbank, offering breathtaking views that extend to the mountains of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Continuous safety fencing ensures that there’s no risk of falling, and the AirWalk has been designed to withstand cyclone-strength winds. A moderate level of fitness is needed to ascend the 112 concrete steps to the top of the walk. There is alternate ramp access to the top of the walk if you would prefer. Dogs are welcome in the reserve if kept on a leash.​ At the Visitor Centre, there's a café with gas barbecues and picnic facilities. 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.
