Ansons Bay
Deep Creek Walk
Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 3.5 hours to complete. This trail is great for birding, hiking, and running, and it's unlikely you'll encounter many other people while exploring. You'll need to leave pups at home — dogs aren't allowed on this trail. This is a beautiful out-and-back coastal trail within the Mount William National Park, on Tasmania's north-eastern coast. The track commences from Ansons Bay and heads out down North Anson Road through bushland to reach the coast. You'll then commence on a long stretch of walking over headlands and along beaches to reach Deep Creek. There is a free campsite, Deep Creek Campground, at the end of the route if you walk a bit further down Deep Creek Road, where there is the option to camp overnight and return back the way you came the next day, or you could park a car at either end and simply drive back to your starting point. The views along this route are simply superb, you can enjoy white sandy beaches with a backdrop of crystal blue ocean as well as bushy windswept headlands and coastal heathlands. The route remains relatively flat throughout beside a few descents and climbs to reach the beach sections, bring plenty of water along with you and sun protection as there's little to no shade.
