Lake Tahune hut camping area (walk-in camping)
This hut, 9 km (4 hr) from Lake Vera, is heated with methylated spirit, which you will need to bring as supplies are limited. The hut sleeps 12 and there are tent sites just past the helipad. From here it is a 2 hr climb to the summit of Frenchmans Cap, but no camping is allowed there. This is a gas/fuel stove-only area.
This campsite is located in Frenchmans Cap Track
The track to Frenchmans Cap is a challenging 4-day hike that’s best suited to experienced, fit bushwalkers, so the rest of us must settle for capturing glimpses of this prominent white peak from the highway. The trailhead and walker registration is on the Lyell Hwy (A10), 3 km west of the Franklin River Bridge. Note: sturdy, worn-in boots, a gas/fuel stove and large-scale maps are essential.
