View from the Top – Mt Ossa, Tasmania

There will be more to come shortly, but for starters here’s the view from the top of Mt Ossa that greeted us on Monday. It literally could not have been better. We were at 1617 metres, the highest point in Tasmania, and there was literally no wind and the sun was just nice and warm. Even one of Forestry’s burnoffs which was visible just past the left edge of this panorama couldn’t ruin this day!

Mt Ossa is mostly accessed by walkers on Tasmania’s world famous Overland Track. We took a slightly different approach to this and walked in via the Arm River track. This track joins the Overland Track at the New Pelion Hut. From there we walked a couple of hours along the track to Pelion Gap, from which we climbed Mt Ossa.
