Mt William National Park enjoys abundant wildlife and far-stretching beaches, located in northeast Tasmania. Marvel at coastal wildflowers and experience diving and fishing at this diverse national park.
The park is an ideal place to see a variety of wildlife. Keep an eye out for the rare Tasmanian Forester kangaroo as well as Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. You may even be fortunate enough to spot a timid Tasmanian devil or two. In the summer months, you will likely see echidnas foraging for ants. Walk along the pristine empty beaches, and be captivated by more than 100 species of birdlife. In the coastal heaths you may spot species of honeyeaters including the tawny-crowned and crescent honeyeater. Other heathland species include the superb blue wren, firetail finch, and the kookaburra. If you are visiting for the day, make use of shelters and gas barbecues at Stumpys Bay in the north. There are camping areas at this bay and also near Eddystone Point. You can access the southern end of the park and Eddystone Lighthouse from the unsealed road to Ansons Bay.
Mt William National Park is approximately two hours’ drive northeast of Launceston (156 kilometres/97 miles).
