This NP in the north of the state is theoretically a cool spot to visit. There is lots of camping on the beach and in port sorrell and wildlife too. The campsites are one of the few places in tassie where we couldn't manage a water view as the NP manage to hide them behind dunes and in the bushes... More

We were staying in Beauty Point and hadn't realised that the road across is now not recommended for tourists, so took the long way round to Springlawn, which cut down on our sightseeing. From the moment we arrived we saw Forester kangaroos, wallabies and Pademelon but unfortunately the wombats have mange, which kills them and this may be why we... More

We were lucky with the weather when we visited, although the flies seemed to like us! Walking round the lake and then back to the Visitor Centre via the Bird hide takes a couple of hours, but you are surrounded by animals, even in the heat of the day. Wallabies, kangaroos, pademelons, birds. You can see them all. It must... More

The day before it had rained in Noah's Ark proportions so getting there was a bit tricky. And then, when I did arrive, vast areas were flooded. But the big advantage was that there was hardly anyone else there so, as I walked out over the 'lawns' there was no one in a vast area. The kangaroos were gathered together... More

We arrived about 11am and after speaking to the park ranger and getting some great advice to avoid the wetter areas, we were off. We took the slightly longer track and also included the lookout at Archers Knob and stopped to take a lot of photos so it took us about 4hours. We saw kangaroos, wallabies, pademelon, tiger snake, another... More

Weather was threatening rain so we did the walk to lake with a boardwalk and bird hide. Nice walk, many interesting plants. Saw a number of interesting birds, mostly on the lake. Easy, rather flat walk on a broad path. The boardwalks were nice and non-slick.

Unbelievable they can charge so much to see this beautiful beach. Not even in Victoria have i ever been asked to pay this kind of money.

We arrived mid afternoon and spent some time on the lovely beaches all by ourselves. As it got closer to sunset we did the lawn walk which takes a couple of hours but gives you lots of chances of seeing the local wildlife. Sadly no wombats this time. Apparently their numbers have been decimated to some kind of disease.

Tricky with toddlers esp 2 year old like mine. But we managed with in our safety limits. This place is gorgeous!!! It's like a pearl hidden in its shell. You want towards it until it reveals itself slowly as breathtaking view overwhelms your nerves and totally makes your day. Wear boots as the ground has pointed plants that might hurt.

This was our first taste of Tassie straight after disembarking the Spirit. The signs to the walks caused some difficulties from the carpark as the track was not adequately identifiable and we found ourselves at the camping ground not the track to the bird hide. After spotting the ranger arriving to open the information centre we had a quick word... More
