    2. Will we be swimming? We have about 1hr30mins to both have lunch and take a quick dip.
    3. Why do I need so much gear? We are erring on the side of careful preparation and precaution, and we would rather be prepared for anything, than not. 
    4. Can I buy food, near the start/end of the trail? It is not guaranteed that there will be an open cafe/IGA, and we will not be visiting Coles Bay (the nearest town) unless absolutely necessary. 
    5. How hard will the hike be? There will be more climbing in the first half of the hike, and there will be muddy sections as well, so proper footwear is necessary. As long as you have good footwear, and are of decent fitness, the hike will not be particularly difficult.

  • 5:00 pm The Port Davey and South Coast Track
    The Port Davey and South Coast Track
    5:00 pm – 5:00 pm
    Southwest National Park, Tasmania, Australia
    The eagerly awaited TUBC Port Davey/South Coast Track is finally here. Walk over sweeping mountain ranges, vast coastline, fresh water creeks and button grass plains and waist deep mud (sorry) in a South West epic traversing from Scotts Peak to Cockle Creek some 145kms away over two weeks. Friendships will be tested, legs will be sore and shoulders aching, and you’ll miss having clean clothes and a mattress, so bring a spare pair of underpants because you’re gonna need em’.
    We’ll attempt to clean off the Port Davey Track in 5 days and the South Coast in 6 with a rest day in the middle at Melaleuca. Two days remain as collateral.
    Itinerary:
    25/11: Afternoon drive to Huon Campground to prepare for an early start the next morning.
    [PDT] Crossing River (26/11), Watershed Camp (27/11), Spring River (28/11), Farrell Point (29/11), Melaleuca (30/11-1/12)
    [SCT] Point Eric (2/12), Louisa River (3/12), Little Deadmans Bay (4/12), Surprise Bay (5/12), South Cape Rivulet (6/12), Cockle Creek (7/12)
    To complete this walk you must have overnight bushwalking experience on walks that are 5+ days in length. Although the Port Davey and South Coast Tracks are not particularly physically challenging in terms of elevation or terrain, the length of this walk is its greatest challenge. You must also be fully self sufficient and pack enough food for each leg of the trip plus two days collateral that you must retain for the duration of the trip. A food drop will be organised for 7 days worth of food at Melaleuca which will only cover the food required for the South Coast Track and the following rest day.
    Cotton clothing for walking is not permitted, you will be turned away if you are not adequately prepared. Refer to https://parks.tas.gov.au/Documents/Walker%20Pack%20List.pdf for a pack list.
    Transport will be by car or private charter to Scotts Peak and back from Cockle Creek, drivers are more than welcome to volunteer their time, a hire car and petrol reimbursement will be provided. Those who are wishing to complete only the Port Davey Track or South Coast Track are welcome to fly in or out of Melaleuca to meet the rest of the group on the 30th of November or 1st of December (these walkers must also retain two days collateral as the incoming group could be late).
