Wide open plains that are abundant in wildlife create a wonderful location to meet some of Tasmania’s friendliest locals. Narawntapu National Park is a great place to get to know the local marsupials and you’ll likely spot Forester kangaroos, Bennetts wallabies and pademelons grazing or resting on the open grassland near the visitor centre at Springlawn.
Narawntapu’s landscapes are diverse, including coastal heathlands and grasslands, wetlands and dry sclerophyll woodlands. This variety in turn attracts many bird species, including honeyeaters, green rosellas, black cockatoos, raptors, robins, wrens and fantails.
Walking within Narawntapu rewards visitors with vistas of long sweeping beaches set against a unique Tasmanian coastal landscape. Enjoy a day of wandering along to Archers Knob for the best views in the Park or take a stroll at dusk around Springlawn Nature Walk. For more of a relaxing day, spend time beachcombing along Bakers Beach then stay the night and enjoy some of the best camping in Tasmania.
