Must see · National Park · Nature / Park
A spectacularly rocky, craggy expanse of land in the southern reaches of Tasmania, Hartz Mountains National Park has the power to enchant with its almost otherworldly appearance. The area boasts richness in plant and animal life, with the park’s lush vegetation--mostly eucalypt forest and rainforest--serving as home to indigenous species like wallabies, possums, echidnas, and platypuses. Named after the Harz Mountains in Germany, the area was made a National Park in 1939.
