South Coast Track

 The South Coast Track is a significant adventure. Very possible but needs planning and thought. For those new to long walks the Overland Track is a much better starting walk.

Once you have done the Overland Track then the South Coast Track is an excellent option for your second walk.

The reason the South Coast Track is harder is due to being more remote, no huts, takes longer, less people do it and the track in places is very muddy.

On the plus Tasmania national parks are investing in the South Coast Track and board walks being constructed over more of it’s length.  It is cheaper than the Overland Track as no fee is needed or booking system, just turn up.

South Coast Track

Transfers to start and finish are easy. The best option is to fly to Melaleuca and then be met at Cockle Creek. We offer transpost to Cambirdge Airport for the flight to Melaleuca and meet at Cockle Creek at the end. It can be done in reverse but you do risk being stuck in Melaleuca if the weather turns bad. Having said that flights operated by Par Avion are fairly reliable and if a delay happens more flights are put on to clear the back log.

The plane is small and the pilots very experienced. It can be bumpy but relax and enjoy the views as you descend into Melaleuca.

Most allow 7 days to walk the 84 km track

Day 1 Melaleuca to Point Eric 13km
A mix of board walk and easy trail.

Day 2 Point Eric to Louisa Creek to Louisa River 16.5km 
This day has a major river crossing to wade assisted by a rope.

Day 3 Louisa River to Little Deadman’s Bay 12km
Boardwalk out of the bush to open button grass plains and then climb the Ironbound range.  The track is not so good as you descend and with fallen branches and mud.

Day 4 Little Deadman’s Bay to Prion Boat Crossing 9.5km
Some beaches to break up the path on this day. Then row across the lagoon.

Day 5 Prion Boat Crossing to Surprise Bay and Granite Beach 12km

Day 6 Granite Beach to South Coast Rivulet 9km
Can be a muddy day.

Day 7 South Cost Rivulet to Cockle Creek 11km
Great track at the end.

Streams and rivers provide enough water.

You need a good tent as there are no huts.
