Strzelecki Peaks (47)

Strzelecki Peaks (47)

great-short-walk-mapStrzelecki National Park named after the granite range that dominates the entire south-western part of Flinders Island is relatively underdeveloped in comparison with many of Tasmania’s other parks. This fact however isn’t a disadvantage, especially not to the keen hikers and climbers who come here to enjoy the massive granite cliffs.

The peaks walk is extremely popular. The views are very special, and possibly the most spectacular one of all is the view looking down across Franklin Sound to Cape Barren Island.

The peaks walk is Level 3, and as with all genuine highland walks, good preparation and care are essential, along with a good standard of fitness and a proficiency for bush walking. Note that it can be cold and often windy at the summit.

Bus Pass New Zealand

The return 2.8km (one way) walk takes about 5hrs to complete based on maintaining a comfortable pace. Obviously the time depends on many factors, fitness and the number and duration of breaks all enter the equation.

Sun protection, sturdy walking shoes or boots are necessary along with clothing to suit the weather of the day. A rain jacket, woollen jersey or fibre jacket is a must. Food and drink should be carried.

Park entry fees DO APPLY. These can be paid at Service Tasmania in Whitemark.

NO pets, firearms or bicycles are permitted in the park.


The closest facilities can be found at Trousers Point approximately 4kms away.

Vehicle Access:

The start of the track is 12.5kms from Whitemark. Drive south towards Lady Barron on B85 then turn onto C806.

About the Author:

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people. My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch. My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
