Tasmania is small in size when compared to the rest of Australia, but its natural beauty knows no bounds. Its national parks are truly unparalleled, and these five deserve a spot on your bucket list.

Freycinet National Park

Tasmania’s oldest and most popular national park is home to the Hazards mountain range, but it’s also worth the visit for its amazing beaches and secluded Wineglass Bay.

Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park

This national park is tucked away in Cradle Mountains, and its lakes and hiking trails will take your breath away.

Mount Field National Park

Mount Field National Park is best known for its rainforest climate and tiered waterfalls—including Russell Falls and Horseshoe Falls, which are its biggest draw.

Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park

This national park lies within the bounds of Franklin River and Gordon River, and it’s worth the visit for Nelson Fall alone.

Southwest National Park

Tasmania’s largest national park is known for its pristine wilderness, and it’s perfect for nature lovers looking for an escape.
