Tall Trees is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. The 60 Great Short Walks offer the best of Tasmania's day walking opportunities.
30 minutes circuit, 1km circuit. Grade 2.
This awesome 1km loop walk is all about the tallest flowering plants in the world. You'll feel small among the massive examples of swamp gum (Eucalyptus regnans) along the Tall Trees walk. These trees can live for hundreds of years, and have been known to reach over 100m in height. The largest trees here were growing when Abel Tasman first sighted Tasmania in 1642, and are taller than the Wrest Point Casino in Hobart. If you're curious about the trees here, there's a clinometer to help you calculate their height. As you walk you can also ponder the life and death of these giants, as you witness what becomes of fallen trees in this forest.
