South West Tasmania offers Australia's most demanding bushwalking.

Taking prime position in this remote wilderness is The Western Arthur Range.

A good place to view the range is at the beginning of the most popular access point to the range - Scotts Peak Dam, at the southern end of Lake Pedder.

The range is only about 22 kilometres long but takes about seven days to walk, in good weather.  A good, shorter walk is to Lake Oberon and return, about four days if the weather is kind.

Expect rain, hale, sleet and snow, at any time of the year.  Plan for gale force winds.

Despite the likely bad weather the Arthurs offers outstanding adventure.

It was shaped by glacial action and features 30 lakes, ridges, rugged peaks and deep cirques.

The views are outstanding.

You definitely need a strong, brave heart and strong legs.  The tracks are a mixture of remarkable efforts by the Parks and Wildlife Service, to deep muddy or dangerous.

It is essential for your safety to take a four season tent, sleeping bag and rain shell.

The best way to get there is by bus with Tasmanian Wilderness Travel.  Also worth the effort is a flight from Hobart to the South West. 

For in depth information there are two great books to assist you in your planning.   The best, I have only found in Tasmania - South-West Tasmania, by Ken Collins, published by Heritage Books, Hobart.  The more well known and still very good is John Chapman's book on South West Tasmania, available at all the main bushwalking stores in Australia. 

If you want to get a feel for what the place is like, visit by Trip Reports Page, for details of a March walk I did to Lake Oberon.

Hope you liked my page, The Arthurs is a remarkable place.
