What a place!
Jun 2021
This is one of my favourite places in Tasmania, in fact the world. The walk is an easy 40 minute return trip but you are rewarded with an amazing view at the end. This place, tulampanga, was place where 3 nations came together. It feels special. A must see when in the Mole Creek area.

Great very and a not too difficult or long walk
Mar 2021 • Couples
A pretty easy walk in on a solid and stable walking track. About 15mins walk one way. There is a bit of up hill but not too hard if you have a bit of fitness. The view is 100% worth the walk, spectacular view of the cliffs and river. There is an observation deck at the end it provides a great platform for the view. Overall definitely worth it and a relatively short diversion off the main road. Allow about 45mins to give yourself time to enjoy the view. There is currently a couple of quite tame roosters in the car park that will take food from your hand if you have some scraps handy.

It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset
Feb 2021
As you leave Mole Creek towards Deloraine, the turn off to this is on your left just out of town... follow that road for a few kilometres ( reasonably well sign-posted) to a car park. There is room for several cars to park.

Tulampanga is a sacred site for the aboriginals...it was the meeting place of there Aboriginal Nations. There is an ochre dreaming place nearby- which was often the case with meeting places for aboriginals.

From the carpark you will follow the path that takes you on a very pretty forest walk. Even if you didn't read one of the many information boards along the way... you can sense that something special happened here.

You will see birds, lizards and wallabies along the way... as you follow the. path to the lookout. It's not entirely about the look out... you should just enjoy the walk. It just makes sense that aboriginals prized this area... there is water nearby, ochre, lookouts and an inviting terrain.

However it is indisputable that once you do get to the lookout that you will be captivated by the breathtaking view. I sat on the seat the top for awhile and just listened to the sounds around me, appreciating how it felt to be so alive.

Spectacular cliffs. Great view.
Feb 2021
Great view of the river running between spectacular high cliffs! Definitely worth the 800m walk in. Easy track although it is up and down throughout. We went the day after a significant downpour so the river was thundering.

River carves through dramatic cliff face
Jul 2020 • Couples
An easy, gradual walk up to a lookout point with spectacular views of a river carving through a dramatic cliff face. The cliffs are amazing. They seem to jut out at a strange angle. You can see where the river has broken through the cliffs. The river is windy with several rapids.

Aboriginal Culture Nature Walk

This is a pretty easy walk through the nature park where they are information about the Aboriginal culture. And there is a viewing point which has great views of the mountains and the river. Highly recommended.

Beautiful view
Feb 2020 • Couples
Not that well sign posted, we used maps app to get to it. It’s only a short walk but does have some slightly uneven ground (we were absolutely fine in trainers) and steps. Beautiful view when you get to it.

Beautiful, peaceful, historical
Jan 2020 • Family
Delightful, short walk through quiet bush land surrounded by talk stringy bark trees. Information signs detail the history of the sight and its cultural significance to the Indigenous Peoples of the land.
The view from the cliffs is breathtaking and worth the short walk.
