Update for edition 6, 2017
Home | Return to South West Tasmania guide book
This page will be regularly updated several times each year. Most changes result from our own trips - very few bushwalkers ever write in and provide corrections. Only major corrections that effect trip planning or navigation are included here.

P 56 – 51.9 and 54.0km A bridge has been constructed across Milford Creek upstream of the lagoon. New tracks that avoid the walk along the dune base have been cut on both sides to the bridge..
P 87 - Spring River to Farrell Point, distance is 13,3km, not 3.3km
P 87 - 44.3km - The old log bridge has broken, use the new bridge as described
P 207 - Lake Tahune Hut. A new 24 bunk hut has replaced the old hut. There are now also several tent platforms near the hut.

A large fire has burnt the access and area near Lake Rhone in the Denison Range (page 195). I expect there will be no access alowed tot he lake for the rest of the 2019 summer.
Also there has been a large fire near Mt Anne, damage tot eh circuit is unknown at this stage.
Huon Track, much of the centre section of the Huon Track has been burnt, I expect access tot he track to be closed for the rest of the summer.
For other areas, until the fires get put out (by rain) we will not fully know of any other damage to popular walking areaa,
