A delightful walk in an easily accessible park in our World Heritage Wilderness

Hartz Mountain National Park is about 1.5 hours south of Hobart, and is a small, glaciated alpine park featuring an easily accessible dolerite peak – Hartz Peak (1255m) – with stunning 360 panoramic views north to Mt Wellington, west to Federation Peak, east to Bruny Island Hartz Peak Day Touron the coast, and south to Pindars Peak and Barn Bluff. We reach it after a pleasant drive south through the picturesque townships of Huonville, Franklin, Port Huon and Geeveston, then through state forest to the park’s entrance.

The park’s vegetation is a mix of sub-alpine mixed eucalypt forest and alpine flora including diminutive pencil pines, distinctive pandanis, endemic heaths and scoparia, with a good temperate rain forest remnant near Hartz Lake. The park’s topography comprises typical dolerite peaks, with shattered boulders and scree slopes below, and several exquisite, glacially gouged and dammed lakes and tarns all set in avery exposed wilderness landscape.
