Want to camp with some wombats?

Shared by |tags,

Tasmania is one place where you can get up close and personal with some of Australia's unique creatures.

There are plenty of wombats and wallabies to go around – so why not head out on a camping expedition with some family or friends and see what kind of cute critters you can spot?

Lucky for you, camping is permitted at Narawntapu National Park, situated on the north west of the island. This park is full to the brim with a number of forest kangaroos, wallabies, pademelons and wombats, which are most easily spotted at dawn or dusk. Please remember not to feed them though, as this can make them very sick! There is also an abundance of birdlife for you to enjoy.

For a very small fee, visitors can camp at the horse yards, Springlawn, Griffiths Point or Bakers Point areas of the park. There are unpowered and powered sites available so your style of accommodation is up to you.

There are plenty of walks in the area for you to enjoy, and if you're a fan of getting out on the water then there's no shortage of ocean for you to make the most of – so take the break that you deserve and head to Narawntapu.
