Located 130km north-east of Launceston, Mt William National Park is reached by back roads from Gladstone. From its long, lonely beaches to its teeming wildlife; from its unique history to its abundant plant life, Mt William National Park is a place of constant fascination. Nestled in the far north-east corner of the State, the park is an important area for the conservation of Tasmania’s coastal heathlands and dry sclerophyll plants. Mt William National Park is one of the best places to spot wildlife, including the rare Tasmanian Forester (or eastern grey) kangaroo (Maria Island and Narawntapu National Park are two other places to see them in the wild). Pack a torch/flashlight and take a stroll at dawn or dusk you will probably see Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons, wombats, Forester kangaroos and maybe a timid Tasmanian devil or two. In the summer months, you may also spot echidnas foraging for ants. Whether you fish or swim; watch birds or wander by the sea, there’s always something more to see in this beautiful national park.
