The purpose of our group is to upgrade then maintain the existing walking track on the northern slopes of St Valentines Peak. This will prevent the erosion and track degradation currently caused by the increasing number of users who are wishing to access this unique alpine environment. Information panels may also be erected to educate track users on the flora and fauna values that exist in the area.

Who we are

The group is made up of community members working in conjunction with Sustainable Timbers Tasmania, the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service and Forico.

Where we work

St Valentines Peak is a prominent mountain on the north west coast of Tasmania only 30
minutes’ drive south of Burnie. The current track up the northern face from the end of Kara Rd
was constructed in 1995 to ensure continued easy access for the public.

What we do

Liaising with landowners on proposed maintenance activities, carrying out track vegetation clearing, upgrading sections, keeping infrastructure in good condition and improving the walking experience into the future. Our group aims to provide more information to potential users and be the single point of contact for issues that arise in the area.
