|Map locating Mt Victoria in the State of Tasmania created and sourced from Google Maps|
Mt Victoria is located South of Ringarooma in the North East of Tasmania in the Mt Victoria Forest Park.
From Launceston or Scottsdale; make your way towards Ringarooma on the C423 (car is absolutely necessary unless you partake in long distance cycle journeys, forget public transport) and truck on through town, Ringarooma Road becomes Mathinna Plains Road at the right hand turn after 1.5kilometres, keep rolling for 12.5 kilometres as the road gets windy and wiggly and look out for a left hand turn onto Mt Albert Road and the car park is opposite the start of the walk at around 4 kilometres.
The road is dusty at times and carries crazy fast weaving logging trucks so hang onto your hat.

I took a hiking pole, Topo shoes, a bright purple merino top and quite a few photos. Easy walking, loads of shade from the sun after leaving the Mt Victoria summit trail.
I returned the same way back to my vehicle.
