Best Hiking Trails in Tasmania

Tasmania is home to some of the country’s most spectacular and rewarding hiking trails. Ranging from 2-kilometre short and accessible hikes to 85-kilometre coastal journeys, Tasmania walks offer an opportunity for a hiker of any level to explore its famous wilderness. Set along the south-western coastline, the South Coast Track is a challenging 6- to 8-day walk in Tasmania which meanders between untouched mountainous terrain and the beach, with the opportunity to camp by the ocean. As a counterpoint to this hike, the Hogarth Falls walk is one of the best day walks in Tasmania. Situated towards the back of Strahan’s historic People’s Park, this 40-minute return walk through a remnant patch of temperate rainforest offers a glimpse of Tasmania’s pristine landscape, rich with native plant species and home to the two-tiered waterfalls. The best walks in Tasmania vary dramatically across the state, presenting the chance to explore diverse and unabated splendour, whether it be near a town or isolated within a national park.
