The Hartz Mountains National Park is located in the far south of Tasmania, and is one of the most readily accessed of the high dolerite ranges. Glaciers carved this upland landscape: terrain features such as tarns (small lakes) and moraines (ice-transported material) are readily apparent.
Hartz Peak is the highpoint of the jagged mountain range, and the summit rises in a pyramid of shattered dolerite. The Southern Hemisphere summertime brings blue skies and cool winds to this 1,255 meter mountain.
Tasmanian Geographic took a walkabout on the trail to the summit, and captured a dozen images to show you the Hartz Mountains at their sunniest and brightest.
