Being one of Tasmania’s less popular national parks means that you don’t have to share the wilderness with too many other people. Douglas Apsley National Park is mostly dry eucalypt forest, however it also harbours pockets of rainforest and there are plenty of hiking trails and spots for a swim.
The easiest hike is the 10-minute walk to the Apsley Waterhole from the southern car park.
This is a relatively new park with very basic facilities. There is free camping in the park including a campground at the Apsley Waterhole. There is no fresh water in the park so stock up on supplies before you get here.
