Seven Day Frenchmans Cap

Bushwalk, Tasmania
Tour grade: T2 - Narrower but distinct tracks in pristine natural environments. Facilities are minimal and you will encounter few other walkers. These moderate tours require a reasonable level of fitness. Frenchmans Cap (1446 metres), an outstanding white monolith in southwest Tasmania’s Wild Rivers National Park, dates back more than 700 million years, making it one of the most ancient landforms in Tasmania. With its sheer cliff face of 450 metres and panoramic 360 degree views of the World Heritage Area, it represents a challenging and spectacular walking experience. The vegetation is also of primeval origin: cathedral-like rainforest on sheltered slopes and broad swathes of button-grass. The Cap towers above the land of the Wild Rivers, of which the most famous is the Franklin, whose tannin-stained, sometimes turbulent waters flow through deep gorges flanking the Cap. In five days you will experience the diversity of the plains, majesty of the rainforest, the grandeur of the mountain plateaus, and the “terrible beauty” of the Franklin River.
