Calcified Forest Walk is a 1.7km, grade 2 Return hike located in Seal Rocks Conservation Reserve Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.
King Island is famous for its agriculture, wildlife, maritime history and rugged coastlines. The island can be reached by plane travel from Burnie airport. Unusual, fascinating and mysterious is how the limestone features that make up the Calcified Forest are often described. This walk is a must for all visitors to King Island.
The calcified forest is where an ancient forest was rapidly covered by sand that has since receded.
