Frenchman's Cap Trek

Your destination, the magnificent white quartzite dome of Frenchman's Cap rises 1443 metres over the Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and is approximately 200km north west of Hobart.

From its summit it is possible to see Tasmania's highest peak (Mt Ossa), Cradle Mountain and Mt Jerusalem.
Your journey begins by crossing the Franklin River; over button grass plains and through dense rainforest to the beautiful Lake Tahune nestled below the Caps towering 450 metre south east face.

From here it's an uphill walk with a scramble or two and we are rewarded by spectacular summit views.

On day four we retrace our steps back to the hut at Lake Vera for the night then on to the Franklin River and our coach journey home the next day.
