Picton River - 9 April 2007

Took the kids for a walk from Tahune out to the Picton River. They're constructing a new walk, which I think is going to be a loop. There are stopping points a long the way, and at least one viewpoint over the Picton River. The new track terminates at a bridge-site, quite near the confluence of the Picton and Huon Rivers. Looks like they're building a suspension bridge across the Picton. If it's to be a loop walk, they'll need one across the Huon as well. Maybe it isn't a loop. There's a viewing platform already constructed across the Picton on the spit between the two rivers. Anyway, we continued past the bridge site, along the old Huon Track. This terminates, a little confusedly, at the site of the old Picton crossing (1949 walk to Federation described here). Quite picturesque here. Mind you, I don't think there's a lot of forest behind some of the strips of trees that often conceal clearfell from the tourists.Picton River at old crossing site - 11 April 2007
