This park is easily accessed in car from Hobart. Depending on how much trekking you want to do there are easy short walks to more advanced ones. There are several waterfalls in park which are great photo opportunities.

Stopped here to walk the forest. Beautiful tall trees in a quiet setting. Great chance to see wallabies along the lower trail. Outstanding foliage of all kinds with some good signage explain what we're looking at.
