Is there a book with tracks in tassie ? Thought i saw a new book on this site a few days ago, checked shop but nothing. Bought something else though. We are planning to go next Feb & this book would be very useful.

regards

Definitely do the Montezuma Falls Track between Zeehan and Rosebery. We did it in April 2001 - very scenic. A pain in the ass boghole several kms in but nothing a bit of speed won't sort out.
There are treknotes on different Tazzy tracks on this site. I recall also viewing national parks tasmania which also lists various 4WD tracks etc.
I'd assume you're putting the rig on the Taz Tiger because if you do book a room as it's hell of alot more comfortable then sitting in a chair.
Enjoy TazzyLove the bush.

I've walked into Montezuma Falls many times. The highest in Tassie. Spectacular after rains. The track gets pretty narrow in spots. It's and old tramline.

The best way I've been down it is on a mountainbike. Great fun. Got stuck along the track after dark one night. Lots of glow bugs.

In Feb. it would probably be much drier than I have seen it.

I like 4wding but consider the walk instead. Royce www.funshow.com.au

Hey BJ. Try www.roving.com.au

The book is good, although the maps are handrawn.

Make sure you get the key off the ranger and do the fire trail
around Mount Wellington.
Very rocky but a a complete different view than driving up the bitumen,
well worth the day trip.

You get a key from:
Parks and Wild life (03) 6233 6560
134 Macquarie st Hobart.

This is where they were 2 years ago anyway.
