Hiking in South Coast

The track follows the southern coastline of Tasmania. It crosses two mountain ranges to avoid sections of the coast

The 70 km Port Davey Track is used by walkers between Scotts Peak Road and Melaleuca, while the 85 km South Coast Track is used by walkers between Cockle Creek and Melaleuca. There are no roads to Melaleuca, so walkers must either fly, sail or walk in and out.
