Tasmania's Top Natural Attractions: 5 Places To Enjoy Iconic Wilderness Experiences

If you want to know what Tasmania excels at above all else, the answer is iconic wilderness experiences. Anyone seeking a true natural encounter will delight in any of Tasmania’s National Parks or World Heritage listed areas below.

Cradle Mountain, Lake St Clair National Park 

Nestled in the rugged heart of Lake St Clair National Park, travellers will delight in this iconic wilderness experience on Tasmania’s Cradle Coast. Explore the mirrored surface of Dove Lake and appreciate the haunting sight of Cradle Mountain’s dramatic peaks rising behind it. Encounter a diverse range of vegetation and walk amongst ancient rainforests. Hard-core nature fanatics shouldn’t miss the opportunity to experience the world-renowned Overland Track; beginning at the rustic former home of Gustav and Laye Weindorfer the six day trek is truly a majestic wilderness encounter like no other. If you’d rather just absorb the stunning surrounds, enjoy a scenic flight over the mountain for an experience you’ll never forget.

Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park

There is a reason why Wineglass Bay is perhaps the most iconic wilderness encounter in Tasmania and it’s not just because Lonely Planet named it as one of the Top Ten Experiences in the state. With its curved bay and transparent waters, Wineglass Bay is a sight for sore eyes and a trip to the state is not complete without witnessing this natural phenomenon. Situated on the coveted east coast in Freycinet National Park, the area is home to a range of walking tracks winding through world class beaches and taking you over stunning mountains including the Hazards. There are walking tracks to suit all physical requirements, and kayaking tours or boat charters available to cater to everyone’s style of exploration.

Hartz Mountains

Forming part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, the Hartz Mountains are a hidden gem of the south-west wilderness. Walk amongst plunging waterfalls, free falling from the dolerite range and explore a variety of eucalypt and rainforest. Visitors will be rewarded with spectacular vistas of a uniquely Tasmanian landscape, transformed by glaciers during the ice ages. The highest point of the mountain can be found at over 1200 metres and offers breathtaking panoramic views of south-west Tasmania. 

Walls of Jerusalem, Lake St Clair National Park

Travellers who long to be immersed in untouched wilderness will delight in The Walls of Jerusalem National Park, part of Tasmania’s World Heritage Area. This remote part of the state is not for the faint-hearted and travellers should come equipped with bushwalking gear and a strong will. This alpine wilderness area will leave all travellers feeling adrenaline fuelled and rejuvenated.

Bruny Island

Across the calm waters of the idyllic D’Entrecasteaux Channel in the south, travellers will stumble upon one of Tasmania’s most charming natural destinations. The plunging cliffs and wild coastline of Bruny Island make it a Tasmanian wilderness encounter like no other. For a 360 degree experience of the island and the chance to get up close and personal with some of the local seal residents, book a Pennicott Wilderness Adventure. On land, there are a number of walks ranging from easy to difficult that will see you standing at the cliffs edge,  staring out at miles upon miles of water.
