The best camping near Hartz Mountains National Park guide

Overview

About

Venture into the heart of Tasmania's wilderness at Hartz Mountains National Park, where ancient glaciers have sculpted a landscape of dramatic peaks and serene lakes. Here, adventurers can embark on a journey through alpine herbfields, gaze upon the stunning red blooms of the Tasmanian waratah, and spot a diverse array of wildlife. With a range of walks from leisurely strolls to challenging treks, the park offers an unforgettable experience for every kind of explorer.

When to go

The best time to visit Hartz Mountains National Park is during the warmer months, from October to April, when the park's flora is in full bloom and the weather is more conducive to hiking. Winter brings its own stark beauty, but be prepared for snow, which can limit access and make trails more challenging.

Know before you go

  • Always check the weather forecast and be prepared for sudden changes, especially in alpine areas.
  • Ensure you have a valid parks pass before entering the park.
  • Register your walk at the booth beside the main car park for safety.
  • Remember, this is a Fuel Stove Only Area; fires are prohibited to protect the environment.
  • Accessible facilities are available, including toilets and shelters designed for disabled access.
