  <header autonumber="false" camping="I assume you could just camp on the side of the road anywhere here, however the nicest spots are 1-2 km down the road on the shore&apos;s of lake Burbury. " access="Mt Lyell is 10 minutes out of Queenstown on the Lyell Highway, 2 hours from Burnie or 4 from Hobart. Coming from Burnie, go through Queenstown and just past Gormanston you will see the boulders on the left side of the road. Just before a small bridge a gravel road goes off to the right, park here. There is a small creek heading perpendicular to road, follow this to some thick bush bashing and two creek crossings before starting the ascent. The lowest boulder is 10 minutes from here and then they continue all the way up the mountain. " history="Jon Nermut did some exploring and posted some photos back in 2005 and the recent development was started in 2014." intro="The Mt Lyell boulder field is a huge expanse of conglomerate boulders spread all over the slopes of Mt Lyell, just outside Queenstown. If you don&apos;t mind climbing on conglomerate then the potential here is huge! There are small sit starts all the way to Adamsfield like giants. The rock is good as the bits that are going to break are obvious and the rest is solid. The steep slope of the Mountain makes keeping your pad in the right spot the only real landing issue.
