Hartz Mountains National Park, Huonville

(4.7/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • All stories about changeable weather are true... but the 5 minutes of good weather makes it's all worth it
  • Final 10k of access road is unsealed but we made it fine in a Camry. Good car park, toilets and a few information boards at the foot of the trails. You need to buy a permit in town before you drive there and display on your dash. I didn't see any sign warning about this until you're almost there and there was no way o was turning back! $50 fine if you get caught without a permit. Trails are very well marked and 90% board walk.
  • Quite spectacular place and plenty of wildlife. Good hiking.
  • Difficult to access but good place.
  • Great place
