No sleep ins SATURDAY morning, for HOFT-meister GonZo expects her tour party to be at the Bird River Bridge by 10:00am (that equates to about a 7:00am start from Burnie!).
From Queenstown drive south along the sealed Mt Jukes Road for 29 km. At this point the road surface changes to gravel and it becomes the Kelly Basin Road. Follow the Kelly Basin Road for 11 km to the Bird River Bridge turnoff. It will take approximately one hour to travel from Queenstown to this point.
Those travelling in 2WD vehicles will need to park at the turnoff and walk the final five kilometres (allow about an hour) along the Kelly Basin Road to the Bird River Bridge. The road follows the alignment of the railway line and so it provides level, easy walking although it can be wet underfoot. Those travelling in 4WD vehicles can drive this final section of Kelly Basin Road. The track is quite narrow in parts so please travel slowly and watch for other vehicles.
I don't know what that means, but GonZo wrote and I dare not miss sending it out.
Bring all the gear necessary for a day walk in the Tasmanian wilderness (or a trail in the Dial set by Bastard and FC). Also bring money for a Queeny countery afterwardsy.
