Western Arthur Range – Kappa Moraine Circuit

This amazing hike takes in the best of the Western Arthur Range without having to do the full traverse. We walk the range as circuits from Scotts Peak Dam, up Moraine A and down Moraine K then back to Scotts Peak Dam.

We walk the Western Arthur Range’s amazing skyline past Lakes Cygnus, Oberon and Square Lake to name a few and up and over the dramatic peaks of Mounts Hayes, Pegasus and Capricorn.

Walkers will need to have a lot of bushwalking experience and need to be fit to tackle this circuit. The range can be subject to extreme weather conditions, even in the best of summer months. We only walk this circuit from January through to the end of March.

It is possible that Tasmanian Hikes may have to cancel a tour due to conditions beyond our control (minimum numbers have not been met, severe weather or bushfires etc).

We reserve the right to cancel a booking without notice, and if we can’t offer you an alternative tour that would suit you, we will refund your payment in full.

Tasmanian Hikes strongly recommends that suitable travel insurance be purchased by the traveller to cover any financial loss, due to your own cancellation, or if Tasmanian Hikes has to cancel a tour. Tasmanian Hikes will not be responsible for your travel expenses or losses arising from a cancellation.

We also strongly recommend that comprehensive travel insurance be taken out against loss of baggage or any medical expenses.
