Mount Misery Huonville

Mount Misery


Directions - Located 45 mins from Hobart, take the Huon Hwy south until you reach Huonville. From here take Wilmot Rd out of town then left onto N Huon Rd. The Bush Retreat is located up the hill on Browns Rd. 

The Hike - With my first full day of exploring the Huon Valley I had scheduled in three hikes for the day starting with a visit to Mount Misery, a place that sounds nothing like it is. After a lovely breakfast at my accommodation I loaded up the Outlander with the essentials for the day and began the lovely drive to Huonville where the turnoff for Mount Misery is. I had read about the drive up to Mount Misery before I visited but I didn't actually expect to need to lock the diffs getting up there. Having booked an SUV just to see what the new X-Trail was like (and being slightly salty at not getting one) I didn't think I would actually need the extra capability over a hatchback but thankfully I did.
