South Coast Track

John, Paul, Chris and David
Tassie 12th - 18th March 2024

David, was the prime mover for the walk. Chris and John had previously completed the walk in 2002 over 5 nights. This time we were taking a slightly more leisurely approach of completing the walk over 6 nights.

The walk is generally regarded as hard, especially days 2 and 6 which combine steep, long climbs and descents on difficult tracks.

The track is advertised as 85kms in length but all of our GPS watches had it at very close to 100kms in length. In any case, this is one of those walks where it is a bit meaningless to talk in distance since some kilometres may take 10 mins to complete whereas others may take well over an hour.
