Our 5 day Mt Anne Circuit Walking Tour takes us on a challenging alpine traverse including the highlight of climbing south west Tasmania’s highest peak, Mt Anne (1,423m). We complete an exhilarating circuit walk in some of the largest and most spectacular mountain landscape found in Australia. Our trek covers varying alpine terrain and is, like most Tasmanian alpine walks, at the whim of the changeable weather. We allow 5 days to complete this adventure in order to give our small group the best chance of completion, including stunning side trip options. This is a technically difficult trek with tricky rock scrambling in exposed terrain, whilst carrying an expedition backpack. The walk is for very experienced trekkers who are comfortable with heights, trek fit and want a challenge facilitated by some of Tasmania’s most expert trekking guides.
There is a pre-trip briefing and a full gear check the afternoon before Day 1.

Our 5 day Mt Anne Circuit adventure is a demanding walk, we advise you to do as much training as you can before your tour with us. The more you train for the walk the easier you will handle the terrain and the more you will enjoy this wonderful part of the world. It’s also important to come along with an open mind ready for an awesome experience whatever the weather, whoever the group. It is very important that you bring the right gear for the conditions. The Tasmanian weather can be unpredictable, storms can arise very quickly and heavy rain and even snow can fall at any time of the year. Quality backpacks, sleeping bags, rain jackets, and over pants are also available for hire. If you are at all concerned about your ability to complete this walk, please contact us for more information/advice.
The terrain experienced on this trek is classic South West Tasmanian mountain topography. There are some sections of manmade and naturally graded trail. However, the route ventures into remote wilderness where trekking along mountain exposed ridges and through muddy moorland high-country is very challenging when coupled with weather exposure and other local wilderness conditions. Some sections on the high circuit are height exposed and require confident rock scrambling techniques with a pack as directed by your guides. Minimal Impact Trekking Techniques are used in sensitive areas and certain route options are determined by local conditions and hazards.
Note: This itinerary is subject to change with any change in community regulations as well as governmental changes and natural circumstances beyond our control.
The things you need to carry are: all your personal equipment in a full trekking backpack that is 70-90 litres in capacity. This includes sleeping bag, inflatable sleeping mat, and a proportion of the shared tent, a proportion of the group’s food and all personal items as specified in our gear list. Depending on the quality and quantity of personal gear and toiletries, the average pack weight should be around 15kg.
A comprehensive gear list is available at the end of the itinerary detailing what equipment is included in the tour cost, what items are available for hire and what you will need to bring with you.
A pre-trip briefing and a full gear check with your guides the afternoon before your Mt Anne trek departs will ensure you have the right mix of gear for your adventure. Please make your way to the Astor Hotel, 157 Macquarie Street, Hobart at 3PM the day before your trip, bringing your pack and what you intend to bring on your trek.
Recently completed the Mt Anne Circuit with Nick and Mitch as guides (and Nick ii as support crew!) Just a short note to say I can't thank those guys (and yourself) enough for the opportunity to experience that most spectacular and beautiful part of the world. Nick and Mitch (and Nick) were the ultimate professionals in every aspect of their roles. A true credit to your business! My rating: 12/10. So thanks again, and best wishes for the wilderness.
