Travelling through the Camden Hill Road

Camden Hill Road, also known as C405, is a long, mostly unsealed north-south route located just east of Launceston in north east Tasmania.

Camden Hill Road

The road is 37km long. It starts from the Tasman Highway-A3 and provides a direct route from Scottsdale and north-eastern Tasmania to the North Esk River valley and the mountain resort of Ben Lomond. The road ends on the Blessington Road-C401.

The road still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs. This is a gravel road and is sometimes in bad condition, especially in winter, so 4WD vehicles are recommended. For safety reasons only 4WD vehicles are allowed on the mountain, when it is snowing. The road is subject to flooding, and in some places can be impassable. Drivers are advised to exercise extreme caution, and not to attempt to drive through flooded sections of road.
