We mention elsewhere on our
site that the trip from Hobart to the West Coast requires a minimum
overnight stay or two. A stay at Lake St Clair is recommended also.
Take the ferry trip on Lake St Clair! The drive to the West Coast from
Hobart can take
up to 4 hours on a road that requires care.
To road from Lake St Clair to
Lake Burbury passes through pristine rainforest. There are many short
to medium walks to break up the journey and delight! The road also
hosts the start of the Frenchman's Cap wilderness 3-5 day walk as well as
the renowned Franklin River rafting journey.
