Safety alert: Climies Track
From 3/7/2020, last reviewed 3/7/2020

​​​Climies Track has been re-opened to vehicles following the collapse of the bridge at Montagu Creek. The Parks and Wildlife Service have removed the bridge and a new crossing point has been created.

Caution should be taken when using the new route. The area is wet and will require ongoing maintenance as the new gravel compacts.


About

​​Map Tasmap​ 1:25000 - Heemskirk
Distance : 20 km one way
​​​​​​Rating : Very Difficult - ​Suitable for high clearance vehicles with dual range and tyres suitable for the terrain. Drivers should have extensive and advanced experience as there are several technical challenges. Recommended to be done in groups of four or more vehicles, as vegetation is too low to winch from.

The scenery is spectacular, with the ocean often whipped up by the Roaring Forties wind. Picturesque waterfalls, clifftops and wonderful mountain views are encountered along the way. 

Climies Track follows a hilly coastal route through Mt Heemskirk Regional Reserve​ between Granville Harbour and Trial Harbour. The track is suitable for experienced 4WD drivers only, with hill-climbs, bog holes, rocky river crossings, and muddy eroded sections. 

There are campsites and toilets available ​at Trial Harbour.
