GUNN PLAINS CAVE

WING’S WILDLIFE PARK

Wing’s Wildlife Park is home of Tasmania’s largest collection of wildlife, including the famous Tassie Devil!

CRADLE MOUNTAIN – LAKE ST CLAIR NATIONAL PARK

Dramatic Cradle Mountain is the rugged jewel of the park and can be seen from Dove Lake on a day visit. Take the two-hour walk around the lake, or spend the day tackling Cradle Mountain’s summit. There are also a variety of shorter walks that pass through beautiful old-growth rainforest..

NARAWNTAPU NATIONAL PARK

Narawntapu National Park (formerly known as Asbestos Range National Park) is a place of peace for people and wildlife alike. Dubbed the “Serengeti of Tasmania”, Narawntapu is one of the best places in Tasmania to view wildlife. Some of the animals that you may see include the Forester kangaroo, Bennett’s wallaby and common wombat. You may even catch a glimpse of a Tasmanian devil.

DIAL RANGE / FERNENDE GORGE STATE RESERVE

Close to the coast, the Dial Range offers short treks (one to four hours return), suitable for families big on energy, but short on endurance. Mt Gnomon and the Thoresby Tunnel can be walked in an hour, and for a little more effort, Mt Montgomery and Mt Dial offer spectacular views.

ROCKY CAPE NATIONAL PARK

Rocky Cape National Park is full of surprises. You may only want to make a quick visit to the Rocky Cape lighthouse with its sweeping views, but there is much more to see if you take the time. Aboriginal heritage, ship wrecks, rock formations turned sideways, beautiful hills running down to the sea and an incredible variety of flowering plants.
