We arrived about 11am and after speaking to the park ranger and getting some great advice to avoid the wetter areas, we were off. We took the slightly longer track and also included the lookout at Archers Knob and stopped to take a lot of photos so it took us about 4hours. We saw kangaroos, wallabies, pademelon, tiger snake, another... More

Weather was threatening rain so we did the walk to lake with a boardwalk and bird hide. Nice walk, many interesting plants. Saw a number of interesting birds, mostly on the lake. Easy, rather flat walk on a broad path. The boardwalks were nice and non-slick.

Unbelievable they can charge so much to see this beautiful beach. Not even in Victoria have i ever been asked to pay this kind of money.

We arrived mid afternoon and spent some time on the lovely beaches all by ourselves. As it got closer to sunset we did the lawn walk which takes a couple of hours but gives you lots of chances of seeing the local wildlife. Sadly no wombats this time. Apparently their numbers have been decimated to some kind of disease.

Tricky with toddlers esp 2 year old like mine. But we managed with in our safety limits. This place is gorgeous!!! It's like a pearl hidden in its shell. You want towards it until it reveals itself slowly as breathtaking view overwhelms your nerves and totally makes your day. Wear boots as the ground has pointed plants that might hurt.

This was our first taste of Tassie straight after disembarking the Spirit. The signs to the walks caused some difficulties from the carpark as the track was not adequately identifiable and we found ourselves at the camping ground not the track to the bird hide. After spotting the ranger arriving to open the information centre we had a quick word... More

Set off from the visitor centre and walked to the Bird Hide where we saw a large variety of birds. Along the way there were plenty of curious pademelons and wallabies. The creature I did not need to see was the huge black snake who was catching some sunshine on the path. After edging our way around it we probably... More

Tried archers knob trail and tremendous view once you climb up 114m hill. Great view. Unfortunately we did not plan well and so got tired without having enough water. There is no place to purchase water, food etc. So planning is very important. Not a crowded place. While returning we came on the beach trail. So got a different experience.... More

Passing though heathland, this coastal path provides spectacular scenery over hills, along a pebble beach and through casuarina forests to Baker Beach which was a sandy stretch several kilometres in length and almost deserted. The signposts indicated the walk was three hours each way but we completed it in four (two each way), including half an hour on Baker Beach.... More

We visited the park with just an hour or so to spare on our way back to catch the ferry. We had time to sample just parts of some of the walks, out to the bird hide on the lagoon and then to the amazingly long sandy beach. Wildlife abounds and if not afraid of human visitors. The pademelons stood... More
