Approach

Follow the Knocklofty walking track from the top of Poets Road for 100m. Once you reach High Life wall, look up and to the right and you will see a line of cliffs running along the hillside. Walk up the hill opposite High Life wall to the cliffs and go 10m back towards the city and you will reach the Wall of Feckless.

Ethic inherited from Tasmania

  • The operation and use of drones by park visitors on reserved land including national parks is not permitted​.

  • Please note that Tasmania has notoriously patchy phone reception for particular service providers. Telstra is the most reliable. An emergency Personal Locator Beacon or similar is recommended kit when climbing in remote locations.
