Starting from Risley Parade, Cape Hillsborough, this walk takes you to Wedge Island and back via the Andrews Point Track, letting you explore the island via an isthmus depending on the tide. You’ll be walking along a quite scenic track with a bunch of lookouts that provide you panoramic coastal views, only to find yourself on an isthmus. From here, you can cross the isthmus and explore Wedge Island for a bit. The beach on the west side of the island may give you a different point of view whilst being more secluded than Cape Hillsborough Beach. Speaking of, if you time the tides well, you can actually go back to the start via C.H. Beach and make this a circuit track. Along the beach you’ll have a chance to see some cute little sea turtles and wallabies along with butterflies. Keep in mind that some of the lookouts may be overgrown and provide lesser views. Take extra care in wet sections and keep an eye out for strong currents. 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 Anstey Hill Carpark off North East Road, Tea Tree Gully, this walk takes you on a circuit within Anstey Hill Recreation Park via the Quarry, Virgin Valley, Swoopy's, Silver Mine and DeVeg tracks. Enjoy a stroll along the Wednesday Loop, named after the day that the Friends of Anstey Hill Recreation Park commit to conserving the park through weeding, revegetating and monitoring flora and fauna. This walk provides great opportunities to observe western grey kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitat, as well an abundance of bird life. Remnants of European occupation are still visible in the park, including freestone quarries, a Dolomite quarry, an iron mine, and Newman's Nursery. The Wednesday Loop goes past an iron mine in the northeastern corner of the park. The Tea Tree Gully Iron Mine was opened in 1853 and produced small amounts of iron ore from the top of the hill until closure in 1862. The track starts off wide and clear as it leads up the first hill, becoming narrower and slightly rocky as it undulates through open eucalypt woodland with a grassy understory. There is clear signage along the way, including detailed informative displays around the Tea Tree Gully Iron Mine. Be mindful that there are some uncovered mine shafts along the side of the trail. 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 Waldheim Chalet at the end of Connells Avenue, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this walk takes you along the Weindorfers Forest Walk. Perfect for families, this lovely stroll takes you through a beautiful rainforest, where you'll see ancient King Billy pines, pandani and Tasmania's renowned deciduous beech. The track leaves from Waldheim chalet and takes a painless grade through the forest. Waldheim Chalet provides an insight into the early history of the Cradle Mountain area and the people who played a pivotal role in the establishment of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. A visual and audio display details the rich history of the chalet and the renowned hospitality and colourful lives of the Weindorfers. Although the chalet is no longer used for accommodation, the nearby Waldheim Cabins offer simple and affordable lodgings. Each cabin is equipped with electric heating, single bunk beds, basic cooking utensils, a small refrigerator, crockery, cutlery and a standard electric stove, making Waldheim an excellent base for further adventures within the park.

This is a great walk, both in size and spectacular views. The walk makes its way from Wentworth Falls train station and drops off the plateau, passing the cliffs and waterfalls of the National Pass trail. The track passes many falls, with Empress Falls arguably the most stunning. The walk then heads up to Conservation Hut, a great spot for lunch before continuing along the Over- and Undercliff Tracks back to the train station. An excellent walk.
