Five kilometres of well-constructed walking tracks through rainforest, subalpine heathland a mountain top and waterfall. Most people take about three hours return to the top of Mt Misery.
The Mount Misery Habitat Reserve is an informal collection of private and public lands. Much of the 14 square kilometres is formally protected by conservation covenants and public reserve status. Vegetation ranges from open grasslands, acacia groves, young eucalypt regrowth, towering old-growth forest with 60 metre tall, 350 year old giants and even a small section of rainforest. Mount Misery is the focus of the reserve.
The walking track, which begins at Huon Bush Retreats, has 30 interpretive panels examining Aboriginal and natural values. Open to the public from 08:30 to dusk, there is no charge but a donation is appreciated to help with the costs of construction and maintenance.
