Tasmania’s wild and rugged west coast has been chosen for its next iconic multi-day hike. The question is…can it rival the undisputed monarch of Aussie bushwalks, the Overland Track?

Well, we reckon so. The multi-day, hut-based hike will go through the vast wilderness of the Tyndall Ranges between Queenstown and Tullah. Steeped in Aboriginal history, it’ll showcase the area’s rugged mountains, alpine vegetation, and glaciated landscapes.

Up to $20 million will be invested into the new hike, which Tasmania hopes will become as iconic as the Overland Track and the Three Capes.

‘Next steps in the project include market testing and a detailed feasibility study,’ says Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service.

‘The study will be informed by consultation with the public, which will guide the walk’s route and design of facilities.”
