Unique Experiences

Mt William National Park

Long walks on empty beaches, coastal wildflowers, camping, fishing, boating and diving are some of the main attractions and activities available at Mt William National Park. This park is also a wildlife viewing hot spot. Pack a torch and take a stroll at dawn or dusk; you’re sure to see Forester kangaroos, wallabies and wombats.

Mt. William National Park is located in the far north east of Tasmania and has an amazing diversity of animals. Forester kangaroos, now largely restricted to the north-east of the State, are abundant there. Wombats, wallabies, pademelons and echidnas are also common. The large population of marsupials has combined with previous farming practices to maintain large areas of open ‘lawn’. Their constant grazing keeps trees and shrubs from becoming established.

Coastal heath-lands and woodlands, which dominate the park, contain hundreds of different plant species, many of which flower colourfully in spring and summer. As a result, bird is rich and varied, with nearly 100 species occurring there.

Mt William is also an excellent area for observing sea birds and although not common, both white-bellied sea eagles and wedge-tailed eagles can sometimes be spotted soaring overhead.

Getting There – From Launceston travel to Gladstone via Scottsdale or Bridport and from Gladstone it is 17 km on unsealed roads to the park entrance. 

Please remember:  Tasmanian National Park Pass Required.

                                Please, not pets.

                                Please observe fire restrictions when in place.
