View From Donaghys Hill

Donaghys Hill

Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park

Directions - Located over two and a half hours north west of Hobart, take the Brooker Hwy north and follow the signs for New Norfolk. Cross the River Derwent at New Norfolk and then follow the Lyell Highway north west all the way to Derwent Bridge. Donaghys Hill is located a further 30 minutes along the highway with ample parking available. 

The Hike - Stop number two on our journey along the Lyell Highway from Lake St Clair to Strahan and this one would provide a bit of a different experience. After a lovely walk around the Franklin Nature Trail, it was a brief ten minute drive along the twisty roads before we came across Donaghys Hill. With all the time in the world to explore these little trails along the way, we parked up and gathered our packs to tackle this small climb up to the lookout at the top.
