SPOTLIGHT – Mt Donaldson walk
Accessible by road approximately 9km from Corinna. The Mt Donaldson Track offers some of the most spectacular views of the Tarkine.
On a clear day you can see the waves breaking at the mouth of the Pieman River as well as an amazing panoramic view. These amazing views are owed to the lack of mature vegetation on Mt Donaldson, much of which was destroyed by a severe bushfire in 2008. Although the climb to the peak is not particularly demanding, it is recommended to take appropriate foot wear and some warm clothing as the peak is very exposed.
