Mt Hartz

1/ Mt Hartz is in the extreme south east of Tasmania west of Geeveston. There is a boardwalks to Ladies Tarn, which is close to Mt Hartz. The final track to the summit of Mt Hartz is rough, but easy to follow. There is also a rough track to nearby Mt Snowy. This gallery shows photos made on a visit on Mt Hartz in 2015. Mt Hartz is the peak on the left and the Backbone Peak is on the right.
