THE HILLWOOD ROCK CLIMBING AREA IS CURRENTLY CLOSED AND NOT ACCESSIBLE TO THE PUBLIC
Climb the remnants of a long-ago extinct volcano.
Whilst currently closed, Council is working with the landowner to re-open the area to the rock-climbing community. Stay tuned for more updates!
When it was open, the Hillwood Volcano was arguably the best sport climbing crag in Tasmania. There are over 150 routes of excellent quality, with unrivalled accessibility. The highly featured rock is a change from the vertical dolerite found elsewhere around northern Tasmania and the cliffs face all directions making it climbable most of the year.
