Get away from it all at Narawntapu

Shared by |tags, , , ,

There's nothing like a good camping trip to put things back into perspective. It's always nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of a busy life and get back in touch with nature.

Narawntapu National Park in Tasmania is a great place to do this. People craving peace and tranquillity head to this gorgeous park that has a variety of scenery, including beaches, farms, islands, wetlands, dunes, lagoons and more! Take your time staying in the area to explore all of nature's wonderful offerings.

The park's nickname happens to be the 'Serengeti of Tasmania', giving you an idea of its beauty and diversity, not to mention plentiful wildlife.

Go camping and you're likely to come across kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and perhaps even a cheeky Tasmanian devil. Head out quietly at around dusk for a good chance of seeing this creatures wandering through the grasslands.

Most are used to humans being around, so you may be surprised at how friendly they are – just remember not to feed them as it can make them ill.

Bird life is also prolific in the area due to the variety of vegetation and little interference from people. Look up into the trees and you'll see an array of species including robins, wrens, fantails, wedge-tailed eagles, white-bellied sea eagles and more.

Camping is permitted at the horse yards, Springlawn, Koybaa and Bakers Point. Self-register at the Springlawn Visitor Centre. Springlawn is the site with the most facilities, such as septic toilets, a shower block, powered sites and electric barbeques.

Other camp grounds will have hybrid toilets and a dining area. Now you know you have plenty of places to stay while exploring the surrounding area!
