About Tasmania: March 9th-April 8th
After completing four months on the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand, I took a month to do various hikes in Tasmania and it was great! There isn’t one complete track, but many smaller trips in Tasmania. There is a long list of things to hit in Tassie with everything being relatively close to one another. Weather and timing dictated what I did and the order I did them. While there I did the Overland Track, South Coast Track, Western Arthurs, Freycinet Circuit, Maria Island, Lake Rhona, Frenchmans Cap, Bruny Island, Three Capes Track, Walls of Jerusalem, Mt Field, and Cape Raoul. It was really fun with a great deal of variety for all levels and interests.
