Access issues

The climbing at Hillwood is on private land and the access to this area is a delicate issue. If it is your first time climbing at Hillwood the land owner has requested that you call Gerry Narkowicz. The number can be found in the guide book (either Climbing Northern Tasmania, or Climbing Tasmania - Selected Best).

If you see non-climbers, please kindly ask them to leave. The owner has not given families or walkers permission to access his land, and day walkers have been jeopardising climber access.

Definitely no dogs.

If there is a sign on the fence saying that the area is closed for shooting vermin please do not enter the area!


From the East Tamar Hwy: Take the first right off Batman Bridge onto Craigburn Rd, a dirt road. Several minutes down you'll see cliffs, a gate and stile to the left. Park here, use the stile. If you get to the sealed portion of Craigburn Rd you've missed it.

Where to stay

Egg Island Reserve, five minutes south of the climbing at Hillwood is the recommended camping location. Egg island has no facilities (no water, no toilets). It is also possible to camp at Batman Bridge Reserve five minutes north of the climbing. Batman Bridge is more widely used (noisy), it does have toilets - however there are now large "No Overnight Camping" signs at this area.
