Pandani Grove Nature Walk
Mount Field National Park
Directions - Located 90 minutes west of Hobart, take the Brooker Hwy north and follow the signs for New Norfolk. Pass through the town and follow the signs for Westerway and then Mount Field National Park. Pass the visitor centre and drive up the winding Lake Dobson Road all the way to the car park at Lake Dobson. The trail starts near the day-use hut.
The Hike - Having visiting Tasmania a couple of times over the past few years, the time had come once again to return to the Apple Isle and indulge in a little hiking holiday. The plan this time was to join my partner's Aunt and Uncle on a two and a half week self drive holiday, exploring the western side of the island and the wonderful wilderness areas that are found there. After spending a couple of nights in Hobart (where it reached 32C!!! on Easter Saturday), the first stop on the road trip was Mount Field National Park. Having visited previously in 2018, I was familiar with the area but was keen to return and complete a few walks I had not done the first time around.
