Travel 13 kilometres west of Geeveston through extensive eucalypt production forests then take the narrow gravel road into the Hartz Mountains National Park. A range of walking tracks leads through subalpine woodlands to ice-carved crags, lakes and alpine moorlands. On clear days, there are superb views east to the sea and west further into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. At any time of year the weather can change suddenly, so be prepared for cold conditions, even in summer.
Current park passes must be purchased for entry to Tasmania’s national parks. For full details please visit the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife website.
