This is a magnificent place for a hike. It starts along an easy boardwalk and even if you opt not to climb the mountain, stopping at the tarns is worthwhile. They are beautiful and unspoilt. The hike up the mountain needs a certain level of...More

The Hartz Mountain walk 3-4 hours walk return, is a magnificent pristine alpine garden, at present an array of delicate flowers ie Mountain rockets everywhere. The day picnic shelter is the best

Beautiful walks through pretty rugged landscape. Mostly boardwalks. Recommend the 1-1/2h (return trip time) walk to lake Esperance. Stunning views with a nice resting place at the lake. The water in the lake is clear and ready to drink

We arrived after a pleasant but fairly crowded walk up the road at Tahune Air Walk. The contrast was incredible - we had the place to ourselves and the change in vegetation was mind-blowing. Beautiful flowers everywhere and stunning views. The walk to Lake Esperance...More

This is a great walk, not too strenuous but enough to get the blood pumping. It's a bit of a scramble over a pile of scree towards the end but still an easy walk with great views of Lake Esperence. A return hike should take...More

Not easily. Try the official park page, they give info on buses etc. At least you can get close, then try a long hike? Good luck! parks tas gov then Hartz then a link to public trans access
