Moderate walk to Billy Browns Falls near Huonville, Tasmania
Recently measured at just over 100 metres tall, Centurion is the second tallest tree on earth. It is in the Huon Valley, about 1.5 hours drive south from Hobart. This is not a visit for unprepared tourists:
The road is accessible by 2WD but is rough in places. There are few road signs so good navigation skills are required.
There is no mobile phone coverage, so your phone GPS will not get you there unless you pre-load the maps while you have signal.
The car park is at the end of a muddy track. Here you must disinfect your shoes, tripod feet and anything else you have with you that has contact with the ground. You will need to take your own disinfection equipment (we can provide that to qualified people at Huon Bush Retreats)
The route to the tree is a taped route, not a constructed track.
To protect this tree from damage by over-visiting and disease spread by boots, we do not provide a map here. To get the map:
Book at least 2 nights stay at Huon Bush Retreats,
Agree to scrub your boots with the cleaning kit that we ill supply when you arrive at HBR.
We will give you access to the map with the boot cleaning kit.
