Hartz Mountains National Park, Huonville

4.9
#3 of 11 in Things to do in Huonville
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.

    Even though it was a cold day (Fathers Day) and there was some snow about it was a good trip. The road is not too bad although a bit slippery in places, so take care. It was good to go to the barbecue...  more »

    Beautiful spot... Cleanest public toilets I've ever been in too!

    Plenty of boardwalks and clearly marked trails. It was very windy with strong gusts up on peaks, so we did not consider it safe enough for us to reach the peak. It was a good walk with 2 lakes and nice diversity of flora along the way.
