The Huon Campground is another designated area for people to stay. Dense bush and tall trees cluster around the camping spaces so I imagine wind would not be a problem. Every space had a fireplace and a table with benches.
There are two ways to walk to Bathurst Harbour/Port Davey/Melaleuca on the south west of Tasmania. One track links Cockle Creek on the east with Melaleuca on the west: the South West Coast Track. The other track extends from the Huon Camp to Bathurst Harbour and further beyond: the Port Davey Track. Jeanette and I decided we would walk some way on the Port Davey track; we had water and food, wet weather gear and time.
Initially a side track from the car park took us through a pleasant grove.
A sign near the beginning of the walk reminded us of the hazards of the walk.Then we reached a boot cleaning station designed to stop the spread of dangerous fungus and other diseases.
