Information

Granite Creek Crossing is on the Climes Track in the northwest coast of Tasmania. Unfortunately, the bridge over Granite Creek has collapsed and access is only possible by taking a bypass on the west side of the Climes Track. This track starts about 15 metres north of the bridge and rejoins the main track around 100 metres to the south. This alternate crossing is pretty steep on the opposite side (southern side), with some rock ledges to climb to make the ascent potentially difficult, especially with no winching points above. The crossing is even more difficult and possibly dangerous if coming from the southern end. Please do not attempt the crossing, during or after rains, and if the creek is in flood.
