WIELANGTA FOREST DRIVE

Tasman Peninsula

 

When driving between Port Arthur and the East Coast, the main highway heads back towards Hobart through Sorell - near Hobart.  There is an alternative route between Orford and Coping along the Wielangta Forest Drive.  The view above is from under Robertson's Bridge.  A short 15 minute walk through the fern laden forest is worth the stop.

NOTE: The bridge above has been replaced and the road now open.

The short forest walk was washed away in floods.

Checked latest conditions as this road was not well maintained (2014)

Visited again and found the road from Orford to the Sandspit Conservation Area was very good.

The road further south to near Coping is passable by 2WD but with considerable care (2018).

 

 

The image on the right above is at the northern end of a 1 1/2 hour walk back to the bridge.  The other two were part of the short walk at the bridge.
