Australia Travel > Tasmania > Adventures > Rock Climbing


Although most of Tasmania’s scalable terrain lies in the middle of remote wilderness, enough of it is accessible to make rock climbing a popular sport on the island. Among the most climber-friendly rocks are the granite slabs and cliffs of Freycinet National Park, which draw mountaineers from the mainland and beyond. Greater challenges are to be found on the basalt cliffs of Mount Wellington, which towers over Hobart. Basalt formations are the commonest kind in Tasmania and generally provide enjoyable but difficult climbing; among the best know are the cliffs surrounding the Ben Lomond plateau near Launceston. Long, serious climbs have also been undertaken on the faces of some of Tasmania’s highest mountains, such as Geryon, Frenchmans Cap, the Acropolis and Perpendicular Bluff.
