Hartz Mountains National Park has been shaped by ancient glaciers and offers visitors a window into Tasmania’s remote and rugged south-west wilderness.While the mountains are certainly the park’s heroes, there’s plenty more on offer in the Hartz Mountains, which is particularly popular with bushwalkers. The extensive natural and cultural values of the landscape have earned the park an important place in Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area.Waterfalls tumble off the high backbone of dolerite, which was covered by a deep layer of ice during the last Ice Age. The resulting features include small glacial lakes and cirques that dot the alpine plateau and make this a wonderfully dramatic place to visit, year-round. While winter often brings snow and freezing temperatures, in spring the wildflowers bloom and the stunning red flowers of the Tasmanian waratah light up the countryside.Hartz Mountains National Park is 1.5 hours south-west of Hobart via Geeveston on the A6. From Geeveston, turn right onto Arve Road (C632) and follow it for around 13 km until you reach the turnoff that is clearly signposted to the park. The final section of the road is unsealed and continues for 10.5 km. Check the road conditions before you travel, as it can be closed by snow in winter.
