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.

  • Stunning area, easy walk with narrow duck board up to the bottom of the saddle with a number of tarns which are all beautiful. The walk up and over the saddle becomes a bit steeper and rockier and on up to Hartz peak..the weather can get a lot wilder up there. Great day walk.
  • One of the best walks in Tassie. Great views and a well marked trail
