I hope to visit the Styx Valley when touring Tassie next January. We will be staying a night at Maydena and will access via the Florentine Rd turn off from Gordon River Rd. Google maps seem to indicate that it is possible to follow Styx Rd back, via Old Styx Railway Rd to Gordon River Rd at Karanja, rather than returning to the Florentine Rd entrance after visiting the Big Tree walk. Is this a recommended way out. It's impossible to tell what standard the entire road might be. Also, references in an old post talk about a walk to Gandalf's staff or similar. Is this still to be found? Any other suggestions while in The Styx much appreciated?
