Mt Field National Park

The Styx Valley Tall Tree Reserve

13 kilometres past the entrance to Mt Field National Park is the small town of Maydena.  Two kilometres past the town boundary towards Lake Pedder there is a turn off to the right.  A fork in the road is immediately encountered.  The left fork leads to the Florentine Valley.  The right fork turns back under the main road and leads to the Styx Valley.  14 kilometres on is the Styx Valley tall trees reserve.  The road is well signposted.  The drive in provides excellent views of the surrounding mountains.  Giant Swamp Gums in this small reserve are up to 87 metres tall and are believed to be the tallest hardwood trees on earth.

 

The walk through the trees is about 20 minutes on a good track.  Street shoes only are needed here.
