Mount William National Park is a pristine paradise tucked away on the far North-East Coast of Tasmania, at the northern end of the Bay of Fires. This windswept coastline features rocky outcrops marked with bright orange lichen and seemingly endless stretches of powder-white sand that squeaks beneath your feet – all set against a backdrop of crystal-clear turquoise water. Mount William National Park is peaceful and relaxed, perfect for walking, fishing, swimming or kicking back at your beachside campsite doing nothing at all.
The Park’s namesake, wukalina/Mount William, sits at 216m above sea level. From the summit, enjoy panoramic views of the coast and, on a clear day, all the way to the Furneaux Islands in Bass Strait. Mount William National Park is home to an abundance of Tasmania’s marsupials and, as you explore, you can spot kangaroos, wombats, wallabies and echidnas. The coastal birdlife is just as varied, with over 100 species.
