Starting just off Trousers Point Road, 12.5km from Whitemark, Strzelecki National Park, this walk leads to Mount Strzelecki via the Strzelecki Peaks Walk. The large granite massifs of Strzelecki National Park were formed during a major continental collision in eastern Australia, approximately 370 million years ago and dominate the southern part of Flinders Island. The steep uphill walk climbs through ferns, she-oak stands and wildflower heath to the summit of the 756m granite mountain, from where there are breathtaking views over mainland Tasmania on a clear day. The nearest facilities are located 3.5km away at Trousers Point, and include toilets, drinking water, gas barbecues, picnic tables and campsites. While the steep climb involves plenty of physical exertion, it isn't technically difficult. The summit can be cold and windy, so bring some warm clothing. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
