Old Telegraph Hill in Corinna

Old Telegraph Hill


Directions - Starting in the small hamlet of Corinna, located three and a half hours west of Launceston, there is only one unsealed road in and out. Once you're in Corinna then head away from the river from the Tarkine Hotel and towards the boardwalk located between two of the cabins on the left of the road. The Old Telegraph Hill trail is the boardwalk section leading to the left.

The Hike - After a sensational morning and early afternoon doing the Whyte River Track and a cruise along the Pieman River, we had a few hours of sunlight left on our final day in Corinna. With Candy and Hal planning another kayak around the rivers, we thought we would join them on the kayaks you can hire from the hotel reception. Unfortunately they have a cut-off for hiring them out due to the person that runs through the safety protocols having already left for the day. The back-up plan was a walk up to the top of Old Telegraph Hill that starts in the centre of Corinna and heads into the lovely forest that engulfs this area.
