Update for edition 6, 2017

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.
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
been cut on both sides to the bridge..
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
207 - Lake Tahune Hut. A new 24 bunk hut has replaced the old hut. There
also several tent platforms near the hut.
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.
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,
