We had been in the area a couple of times but we decided to go and explore the big trees in this wonderful part of the world we where so glad that we did, absolutely marvellous place better than the brochures at all the local...More
The Big Tree reserve in the Styx Valley feels like something out of the Jurassic era, a huge jumble of fallen giants clad in bright green moss, a feeling that some prehistoric creature could at any moment appear from the twisted confusion. And then there...More
It is well worth driving the 16 or so kilometres along the unsealed road to do the 2 easy walks in the Styx Valley. The huge trees are truly an awesome site. I don't need to say anything else....go and have a look for yourself,...More
Long gravel drive to Big Tree and lots potholes but can be done at about 40- 50kph.
There is NO EXIT from the end of the road so you have to retrace your drive.
I found all the Tolkein walks but youll need the local...More
Over the last 15yrs Forestry Tasmania desecrated this Valley rich in Eucalyptus Regnans (the biggest flowering tree in the world) It was a potential major tourist attraction before they took most of the Regnans for woodchip export and in the process laying waste to many...More
There are no facilities whatsoever for visiting the very tallest trees, including Centurion. And no hope of doing so unless you know someone locally who knows where they are. The walk is only 30mins (steep, many fallen logs) but knowing where to go on a...More
What majestic elements of nature are on show here. The varieys are evident to us now after travelling to so many National Parks this trip. The variety of stages of their growth are every where to be seen. I did a lot of tree hugging.
What a wonderful place to visit. The road in is a little rough, we did it in our 2 wheel drive you just have to drive a little slower.
The trees are amazing, the photo's don't do them justice. On the other side of the...More
It's about 45min drive from Mt Field National Park & after Maydena the turnoff gravel road is suitable (but a little rough) 2WD in dry. The Big Tree & Bigger Tree walk is very good - walking through primeval forest with these amazing trees (&...More

The last few kms are on a dirt road but it is quite a good surface road, even following a lot of recent rain when we were there.We had 2 cars in our group; a Camry and a Suzuki Liana-absolutely no issues with either vehicle. There were many other cars in the car park which were not 4 wheel drive and some of them rentals. As usual take extra care on these roads and you should be fine. Unfortunately in Tasmania many places of interest do require travelling on some dirt roads. It is worth checking with your hire care firm. I hired a car in Victoria recently and drove on a dirt driveway every time I visited family on the farm and they had no issues with that. It is worth the drive plus there is a wonderful water feature 'Junee cave'
on the right before you turn off the main road. It's well worth the gentle walk.
