Narawntapu National Park, east of Devonport, has low coastal ranges and long-stretching beaches. The park is an ideal place to see rare Forester kangaroos as well as the more common wombats, pademelons and Bennetts wallabies.
The park also has a rich concentration of birds including robins, wrens and fantails and golden whistlers.
Spend time camping in the park at Bakers Beach where there’s an excellent campground, a picnic area and wildlife viewing areas.
Visit Penguin Island at low tide, or Rabbit Island – the hideout of bushrangers Brown and Jefkins in 1835.
Wander the historic farm in the park and explore the wetlands, dunes and lagoons, each with its own ecosystem of plants and animals.
Access to the western end of the park is via the Frankford Highway and is less than a one-hour drive from Launceston.
