• Pure Air - Pristine Environment

    East Coast, Tasmania, Australia .

    Why Tasmania?

    Tasmania's greatest asset is the very fact that it is an island at latitude 42Degrees South - look west and the next land feature is the east coast of Argentina - look south and it's Antartica. The cleanest air and purest rainwater in the world; rivers and streams that originate from pristine mountain ranges and filter through ancient rainforests and highland peat marshes into the cool Southern Ocean. Tasmania's maritime environment with its four coastlines are unique as they are diverse, teeming with a rich array of endemic cold water sealife, they set the island apart from mainland Australia. With only 500,000 inhabitants Tasmania is, and will always remain, an unspoilt jewel at the bottom of the world.

    Scenic drives

    Cape Tourville

    The Friendly Beaches

    Spectacular views and miles of unspoiled white sand beaches are the main features of The Friendly Beaches, which were added to the national park in 1992. The beaches can be reached via a signposted turnoff on the Coles Bay Road. We are upgrading facilities, which at present are only basic. Gravel roads lead to car parks overlooking the beaches at a couple of points. Some information signs point out interesting features and foot tracks lead to the beaches. Basic camping is permitted at Isaacs Point and Ridge Camp, though there is no fresh water. Isaacs Point also has pit toilets.

    Ranger led activities

    During summer, rangers offer a variety of activities such as walks, talks and slide shows for both adults and children. Besides being lots of fun these are a great way to learn about our national parks, wildlife and heritage.

    Water activities

    Sleepy Bay is a great place for snorkelling and diving, while Honeymoon Bay is a good sheltered area suitable for beginners. Spectacular rockpools occur at both of these locations, as well as at Ranger Creek, and are well worth a look. Please don't disturb the sea creatures as they are fragile.

  • Mount William National Park

    Adresse: .

    Mount William National Park is a pristine paradise tucked away on the far North-East Coast of Tasmania, at the northern end of the Bay of Fires. This windswept coastline features rocky outcrops marked with bright orange lichen and seemingly endless stretches of powder-white sand that squeaks beneath your feet – all set against a backdrop of crystal-clear turquoise water.

    Mount William National Park is peaceful and relaxed, perfect for walking, fishing, swimming or kicking back at your beachside campsite doing nothing at all.

    The Park’s namesake, wukalina/Mount William, sits at 216m above sea level. From the summit, enjoy panoramic views of the coast and, on a clear day, all the way to the Furneaux Islands in Bass Strait.

    Mount William National Park is home to an abundance of Tasmania’s marsupials and, as you explore, you can spot kangarooswombatswallabies and echidnas. The coastal birdlife is just as varied, with over 100 species, ranging from tiny honeyeaters, wrens and robins, to terns, gannets, albatrosses and oystercatchers.

    Forester kangaroos are prolific, as are Pademelons and Bennetts wallabies, all of which are best spotted at dawn or sunset. Echidnas, on the other hand, can often be seen ambling about during the day, while Tasmanian devils scavenge here at night. In spring and summer the heathlands abound in wildflowers, and the park is visited by approximately 100 species of birds.

    This is one of the best places to snorkel in a State renowned for the excellent visibility of its temperate waters. Swimming and boating are also popular, though you should take care - the tides are strong and reefs just below the surface can be a hazard. Scuba-diving is best undertaken with a guide, as good sites are some distance from the shores of the park.

    The Eddystone Point Lighthouse was built at the southern end of the park in 1889. This impressive and well-preserved structure is popular with visitors, though no tours of its interior are available.

    Short and Long Walks in Mount William National Park

    Short strolls and long beach walks are magical, and the summit of Mount William itself is an easy 90-minute return walk. You must carry your own drinking water wherever you go in the park.

    On some walks you will find evidence of Aboriginal occupation in the form of large middens created by the discarded shells from long-ago meals of seafood. These are precious places that must be respected and protected by all visitors to the park.​

    Swimming and boating are also popular, though you should take care - the tides are strong and reefs just below the surface can be a hazard. Scuba-diving is best undertaken with a guide, as good sites are some distance from the shores of the park.
