Lee’s Paddocks Hiking Trip – Tasmania, Australia

Platypus Paparazzi Photography Welcome to the Platypus Paparazzi Photography Website

Hey Everyone,

The crew at Platypus Paparazzi Photography have just returned to civilisation following a recent visit to Lee’s Paddocks near the Central Highlands of Tasmania. Lee’s Paddocks represents a bygone era in Tasmania remiss of the legends of the Man from Snowy River from the Kosciusko high plains, where cattlemen forged their livelihoods out of the open alpine grasslands of Australia’s High Country. This area is truly spectacular, lying in the shadows of Cathedral Mountain, Mount Pelion East and just North of the giant, Mount Osser.

Lee’s Paddocks is private land located within the Central Highlands Conservation Area. Camping is permitted, usually with the consent of the Landowners. The land lies along the Mersey River, upstream of Lake Rowallan, to the West of Mole Creek, Tasmania and is a relatively easy 2-3 hour hike from the top end of the Lake Rowallan Road, about 8 Km past the turn off to the Walls of Jerusalem track head.

I have uploaded a few photos from this visit and will add more over the next few days. I hope you all enjoy this beautiful part of Tasmania.
