Mt William National Park Day Tour
Tasmania Day Tour – Pristine Beaches, Walks and Landscapes
The Experience – Departs Scottsdale – A Day of exploring the far northeast corner of northeast Tasmania with beach walks, wildlife, and birdlife at Mt William National Park. Pursue the monotreme double in platypus and echidna and enjoy a picnic lunch with the wallabies
Departing Scottsdale at 9.00 am we hunt for the elusive platypus in its natural habitat before travelling east to see visit some regional tourism icons. Along the way there may be roadside discoveries of echidna, reptiles and raptors soaring high above.
Little Blue Lake
We visit Little Blue Lake – a natural phenomenon resulting from the regions alluvial tin mining and pioneering days. Originally a mining hole, the lake reflects a vivid aqua blue from the minerals in its base.
Mt. William National Park
Mt William National Park features sparkling granite boulders covered with bright orange lichen, long sandy beaches and clear blue seas with bird and wildlife species throughout. Take a stroll along the beaches, lunch with the Bennett’s wallabies and the many resident bird species. After lunch an optional 60-minute return walk to the summit of Mt William is on offer for 360-degree views of the Park. The park is home to forester kangaroos & wombats and wedge tail eagles are often viewed soaring over the park and echidnas are a frequent roadside find.
On the return journey we can take the coastal road to Anderson Bay which offers up an abundance of beachside life. There are nooks and crannies throughout the coast that hide white sand beaches perfect for escaping the fast pace of modern life. Or, if more beaches are not your preference, we can travel some backroads through some diverse landscapes which can deliver a treasure trove of discoveries. Return to Scottsdale late afternoon.
