Mount William - Northern Tasmania

Saturday 27th December 2014

Start of track
I drove over to Mount William National park on my way home from Bridport with the intention of doing the short walk up to Mount William. It is probably an exaggeration to label it as a mountain as it is only 220 metres high but that is what it is called. There is an opportunity to do a longer walk from Stumpys Bay camp 4 which is supposed to be 5 hours return but as I wanted to get home at a reasonable time I opted for the shorter version.
Mount William track
I started walking very slightly up hill through nice forest of she oak and banksia. The track climbed ever so gently and I soon reached the summit after about 25 minutes. There were great views of the surrounding countryside. I then walked back to the car. This would be one of the easiest walks anyone could do, but it does provide nice scenery at the summit.
Distance: 3.5 kms.
Time: 48"
Ascent: 140 metres
