Trip highlights


  • Summit Mt Anne (1425m)
  • Unbeatable views over the south west wilderness World Heritage Area
  • High altitude glacial lakes
  • Spectacular ridge walking and exposed scrambling
  • Endemic sub-alpine flora
  • Challenge yourself with one of Tasmania's most rewarding mountain peaks

Located in the remote south west of Tasmania the summit of Mount Anne presents one of the world's great bushwalking challenges. The climb to the summit combines all of our favourite aspects of a south west wilderness epic: a spectacular objective, sub alpine crags and exposed scrambles, deep forests, idyllic lakes and a stunning remote camp. Our four day itinerary allows us enough time to hike comfortably up to the plateau and establish a base camp from which we can attempt the Mt Anne Summit and surrounding side trips. Starting at Scotts Peak Road at Condominium Creek we trek up past the high camp and over Mt Eliza to establish our campsite at Shelf Camp. This is an extremely demanding and remote bushwalk subject to some of Tasmania's most extreme weather. The Mount Anne summit is open to people with previous full pack carrying bushwalking experience with a high level of fitness and confidence in difficult geographical and weather situations. Please contact our office to discuss your suitability for this unforgettable, once in a lifetime trip.


This morning you will be picked up from your hotel in Hobart by your guides as per the time arranged at your pre-departure briefing. We transfer to the south west of Tasmania by private minibus with a morning tea break along the way. The drive to the Mount Anne Summit Trailhead takes approximately 3 hours. We begin the steep ascent onto the spur leading us up to High Camp Hut beneath Mt Eliza and its associated plateau. The views gained on this ascent are spectacular and give us a taste of what is to come once trekking amongst the heights of Mt Anne and our base camp at Shelf Camp. The alpine herb fields and endemic cushion plant communities provide a unique backdrop to the awesome water masses of Lake Pedder and Lake Gordon with the might of the Western Arthur's looming in the background. Walking distance: 3.6km - | Walking time: approx 3 - 4hrs

Meals:  L,D

Today our trek takes us higher onto the mountain massif via tricky boulder fields and straight forward walking across the top plateau between Mt Anne and Mt Eliza. If weather permits today we drop our full packs at a junction and attempt the steep, challenging summit of Mt Anne (1425m) before descending down to Shelf Camp. Shelf Camp is up there with the best wilderness campsites in Tasmania – backed by grand cliffs and fronted by an unbeatable view over the majestic southern face of Mt Anne. Walking distance: 3.1km + Mt Anne side trip | Walking time: 3-4hrs + side trip

Meals:  B,L,D

Today is factored into the itinerary to allow us maximum chance of climbing some of the epic surrounding peaks in fine weather. We utilse the day to explore the area, including a summit of Mt Anne (if we didn't get to yesterday). We can either camp at the stunning Shelf Camp once more or make our way down to high camp for the night and enjoy our last South West Tasmanian sunset.

Meals:  B,L,D

Today we break camp and begin our climb down from the plateau and back to the trailhead. The walk down rewards us with views of unparalleled beauty out over Lake Pedder and the Western Arthurs. As you make your way down off this challenging track you can reminisce over your incredible achievements of the last couple of days - climbing one of Tasmania's toughest and most stunning mountains Walking distance: 3.6km - 6.7km | Walking time: 3 - 6hrs

Meals:  B,L
