Fingal Valley provides the shortest access to Tasmania's East Coast from the
north of the island. From the Midlands Highway at Conara, the Esk Highway passes
through the townships of Avoca, Fingal and St Mary's. There are several
interesting diversions along the way. These include
and Mt Puzzler to name just a few.
western end of the valley is dominated by Stack's Bluff at the southern end of
Ben Lomond. The eastern end is dominated by St Patrick's Head. There
is a very steep walk up St Patrick's head. The track commences a
couple of kilometres from the centre of St Mary's. It is well signposted.
Spectacular panoramic views from the top. About an hour or less each way.
