Mount Stronach Walking Track

Mt Stronach is on StateForest lying 4 kilometres east of Scottsdale and rises from 130 metres above sea level to 465 metres at the summit. The walk is approximately 2.5 hours return with wonderful views of north east Tasmania from the summit

The Mt Stronach Walking Track can be accessed by exiting the A3 Highway east of Scottsdale turning onto Buckney’s Road and following the sign to Mt. Stronach Forest Reserve. This 5 km return walk zigzags around the slopes of Mt.Stronach which are clothed in dry native forests of peppermint and stringy bark eucalyptus with white gum and dry white top stringy bark around the rocky knolls along the ridgeline. Poorly drained areas carry Teatree whilst exposed granite slabs are often covered in kunzea scrub. Following European settlement, Mt.Stronach, like other granite areas of the North East, was prospected for tin but very little was found except in some of the streams flowing out from the lower slopes. Some water races were constructed to collect water for hydraulic mining of alluvial tin. In keeping with early exploitation of natural resources, the better stands of forest were cut for sawlogs and fencing material in the early part of the 20th century. In 1903 an impressive cairn was erected on the summit to commemorate Federation.
