Tall Trees Walk is a 1km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Mount Field National Park Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.

Summary

The tall swamp gums of Mt Field National Park are amongst the tallest trees in Australia. This walk allows plenty of opportunities to appreciate them. Visitors have the opportunity to use a clinometer to calculate the height of these massive trees.

Highlights

The swamp gum, Eucalyptus regnans, is the tallest flowering plant on Earth. The Tall Trees circuit takes you through a spectacular forest of these giants, the largest of which were growing when Abel Tasman first sighted Tasmania in 1642, and which are taller than the Wrest Point Casino in Hobart.

Hobart and Surrounds

Getting there
