Road trip guide: Conquering the Wielangta Forest Drive

Wielangta Forest Drive is the name of a very scenic drive in the South-east region of Tasmania, running through tall eucalypt production forests.

Wielangta Forest Drive

Tucked away in the Wielangta Forest Reserve, the road is totally unpaved. It’s 20km (12.42 miles) long running south-north from Dunalley to Orford.

A 4x4 vehicle is required. The road is a short cut between the Tasman Peninsula and the East Coast. Running through tall eucalypts, there are areas along the track which are poorly maintained. Please note is a gravel road if you are in a hire vehicle.
