Rock Climbing

For an extreme view of Tassie's great wilderness and mountain ranges, a rock climbing or abseiling adventure is the go. Tasmania is Australia's most mountainous state so what better place to find a climb you'll remember for a lifetime?

In Tasmania you'll find a diversity of climbs packed into a relatively small area, with everything from short sport routes and boulder problems to big wilderness adventure climbs. And you'll find six different rock types – granite, dolerite, basalt, quartzite, sandstone and conglomerate.

Try the famous world class Totem Pole or the Candlestick, two dolerite stacks found on the Tasman Peninsula in the Tasman National Park.

For a unique and breathtaking descent, take on the world's highest commercial abseil down the Gordon Dam wall and watch the wilderness far below.

Climb up or abseil on majestic Mount Wellington, just a stone's throw from Hobart, or travel further afield to Freycinet Peninsula for coastal cliff climbs and amazing sea views.

In the north, there are climbs in the Fingal Valley and at Ben Lomond National Park - in fact, you'll find great climbing in most of Tasmania's national parks and reserves.

From spectacular sea cliffs to the highest and most challenging mountains, you can extend your abseiling or rock climbing skills in some of Tassie's most beautiful locations.
