Wee Georgie Wood and the Tullah Tramway Trail is a 1.5km, grade 3 One Way hike located in West Coast Tasmania Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.

Summary

Until the construction of the Murchison Highway in 1962, there were no roads to Tullah. The town’s only connection with the outside world was the Tullah Tramway. Lake Rosebery now covers much of the old tramway formation but a short section can be walked on the northern side of the lake starting at the Lake Rosebery Water Ski Club on Pieman Road.

For more information on this trail see the book Rail Trails of Tasmania.
