Tasman National Park

Introduction

Tasman Icon
Tasman National Park protects diverse forest and spectacular coastline from Cape Surville to Waterfall Bay and Fortescue Bay; and from Cape Hauy to Cape Pillar and Cape Raoul. The park incorporates several off-shore islands, including Fossil Island, Hippolyte Rocks and Tasman Island.

It is an area of great beauty and natural diversity, including some of the most stunning coastal scenery anywhere in Australia. Not suprisingly, the park offers some of the best coastal walks in the country. Many interesting rock formations can be found along the coastline, while the southern end of the park has some of the highest and most spectacular sea cliffs in Australia. The park is also home to a wide range of land and marine animals, and several species of rare plant.

The Tasman National Park was proclaimed under the Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) in April 1999. The RFA identified the area for reservation for a number of reasons, including its high conservation and scenic values.

The park is home to Tasmania’s newest walking experience, the Three Capes Track. The 46-kilometre track has been designed as an achievable experience for a wide range of ages and abilities. This pre-booked walk takes four days and three nights. The track has been built to a dry-boot standard and evenings are spent in warm and comfortable environmentally-sensitive cabins.
