“Located on Tasmania's East Coast, Douglas-Apsley contains one of the few uncleared dry forests in the state, with a long history of use by farmers, miners and animal trappers before it was declared a protected area.”
Douglas-Apsley National Park is incredibly diverse, with river gorges and waterfalls, eucalypt forest and heathlands overlooked by a dolerite-capped plateau. The park also supports many rare and endangered species that only exist here.
Walks in the park range from short, easy strolls to demanding overnight walks.
The Apsley Waterhole, a ten-minute walk from the car park off Rosedale Road at the southern end of the park is a great spot for a picnic, scenic bushwalk and a leisurely dip on a hot summer day.
Short strolls from the Waterhole take in water views and the picturesque Apsley Gorge, with its tranquil pools and undisturbed river scenes. Longer walks lead through wildflower marshlands, wet gullies and deep gorges to spectacular waterfalls.
