Adamson's Peak

Adamson's Peak is a mountain in the Hartz Mountains National Park in southern Tasmania, Australia. With an elevation of 1,225 metres (4,019 ft) above sea level, it is the 55th highest mountain in Tasmania. It is a prominent feature of the national park, and is a popular venue with bushwalkers.

Adamsons Peak lies deep in the southern part of Tasmania, the last significant range before the Southern Ranges of the south coast. Access is via the Huon Highway from Hobart, past Geeveston to Strathblane, where either the Adamsons Road or Darcey Link Road will take you to the sign posted start of the Adamsons Track.

This part of the state is notorious for bad weather; even with a perfectly stable forecast we still suffered a half day of temperamental rolling sea cloud, not the worst of conditions, but evidence of the fickle nature of a range so close to both south and east coasts.
