Overview

Highlights

Mt William National Park on Tasmania's north-east coast has long beaches and is an ideal place to see a variety of abundant wildlife. Keep an eye out for the large Tasmanian Forester kangaroo as well as the more common Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. You may even spot a Tasmanian devil or two and in the summer you're likely to see echidnas foraging for ants.

A walk along the pristine empty beaches will captivate you with more than 100 species of birdlife. In the coastal heaths are several species of honeyeaters including the Tawny-crowned and crescent honeyeater. Other heathland species include the superb blue wren, firetail finch and the kookaburra.

There are camping areas, shelters and gas barbecues at Stumpys Bay in the north and also near Eddystone Point in the south. Access to the southern end of the park and Eddystone Lighthouse is via the unsealed road to Ansons Bay. Mt William National Park is around a two-hour drive north-east of Launceston.
