The Freycinet Circuit is a challenging yet rewarding walk. One of the most beautiful spots in Tasmania is the beautiful Freycinet Peninsula, with its majestic white sands and litter of small bays that stem around the coastline. Set off by Turquoise blue water that you just can't wait to jump into after a long day hiking.

The never ending climb with no end in sight, literally...the whole walk you cannot see the summit so you have no idea as to where you are at in the walk until you hit the top. Was the climb worth it? DEFINITELY!!  When I reached the summit I was greeted by amazing views overlooking the Tasmanian wilderness.

As the ferry draws closer to Maria Island your eyes are drawn towards the left of the island and the silhoutte of the two towerig peaks otherwise know as Bishop and Clerk.The views from the top of these dolarite columns are mesmerising that is if you are game to climb to the 620 metre (2,030 feet) summit.The walk takes you past convict ruins, tall cliff edges and fields of boulders. The closer to the top the harder the climb gets and the bigger the boulders.

Shipsterns is very popular with avid surfers and is known worldwide as a place to surf because it has some of the most dangerous breaks, not for the faint hearted. Parts of this walk (the end) is very challenging (mostly on the way back up) you will find yourself climbing very steep rocky paths. It was all worth it though in the end, because you got to take away the memory of arriving to the bottom of Shipsterns where you can sit down and take in the serenity of the massive waves thunderously crashing against the rocks. It's peaceful, untouched and special.

 A great walk after all this rain we have had especially because there are so many nice little waterfalls on the way. It's a big uphill climb but the views at the top are well worth it.

Today was spent at Mount Field East National Park on a 5hr slog walking up icy boulders, trudging through thick mud, having fun in icy puddles and experiencing spectacular views of Lake Fenton, Lake Nicholls and the far away mountains caps covered in snow. I’ve got to say a hot shower never felt so good!!! It was defiantly an enjoyable walk though.

Today I decided to brave the rain and fog and go for a wander up Mount Wellington. I've been wanting to do the Zig Zag Track for a long time, starting at the Springs and ending at the Summit, then returning down the Icehouse Loop. It’s a challenging uphill walk but very rewarding.

Half way up, after a lot of 'ouchies' I sat down and thought surely this can't be the right way up. Who in their right mind would climb these prickly, slippery rotten boulders……and why have I not yet passed anyone (there were other cars in the park). I had come this far and was not willing to turn back and start again, so dirty rotten boulders it was!! After an hour of climbing I came to a small clearing and alas there was 'The track'! I felt like all my Christmas' had come at once!
