Discover a peaceful, country retreat in Gladstone. A former tin and gold mining town, Gladstone is today the service centre for the Far North East and a good base from which to explore the magnificent coastline and heath lands of Mount William National Park. Make Gladstone your base – a range of accommodation is available, from pub and hostel-style to powered sites and self-contained accommodation.


Pyengana ..  a valley of lush pastures encircled by steeply wooded hills … a rest stop on the twisting Tasman Highway. Settled in the mid 1800s by a hardy group of mainly German immigrants, Pyengana has become a haven of laid-back agricultural enterprise. The fertile river flats are home for a dairy industry that produces award-winning cheese (and you can watch the process), just down the road from the spectacular St Columbar Falls and the rustic “Pub in the Paddock”. 

Mount William National Park offers visitors pristine white beaches, turquoise ocean, lichen-splashed granite rocks and beautiful wild flowers.

Wildlife is abundant – take the Forester Drive at dusk or early morning for close encounters with wombats, wallabies and indigenous Forester kangaroos.

Visit Eddystone Point Lighthouse (c1889) at the southern end of the park – the granite houses are the oldest surviving lighthouse keeper’s quarters in Tasmania.

From Ansons Bay, return to the North East Trail via Gladstone.

South of Gladstone take a short drive to the amazing Blue Lake.
