Tasmania Hobart National Parks

Hartz Mountains National Park

Covering an area of 8470ha of rugged highlands, Hartz Mountain National Park is the closest world heritage area to an Australian capital city. The park is covered with alpine heathland dissected by wild rivers and dotted with pretty lakes whose origins go back to the glaciers. Mt Hartz's dolerite peak (1254m) dominates the landscape and along with other peaks is snow covered most of the year. The park is popular with snow lovers and is beautiful in spring when the bright red waratah blooms. There are several good bushwalking tracks which lead to Mt Picton and Federation Peak.
