Spring to the Summit

A favoUrite for locals and visitors alike  

This walk starts at the Springs, located half way up the mountain at 700m.  The walk starts on the Pinnacle Track which winds through native eucalypt forest which thins out on the climb up and is replaced with glimpses of views and more alpine plant species.  There are plenty of places to stop and absorb what kunanyi has to offer.  As we draw closer to the summit of kunanyi the track becomes more exposed and steeper.  We find ourselves being dwarfed by large dolerite boulders before reaching the summit where the Westerly winds of the roaring 40’s blast you in the face! But what a view!  We enjoy the views and some well-deserved light lunch with a Tasmanian twist before being picked up from the summit. This classic walk is all about the views and reaching the top, while also having time to stop and appreciate the views and immerse yourself in nature.
