Narawntapu National Park

Narawntapu National Park is like a time capsule of what Tasmania would have been before colonialisation. Virtually untouched coastal bushland and kangaroo plains, this is a must-do during your trip to Tasmania.

Located only a 25-minute drive from Devonport, this wilderness experience will leave you feeling awed at some of Tasmania's best landscape and natural habitat for our local Tasmanian wildlife - Forester Kangaroos included.
