Douglas–Apsley National Park
The premier feature of this gorge-cut national park is a beautiful opal-coloured waterhole five minutes walk from the carpark. It is great for a dip on a hot day, but to preserve the water clarity you are asked to leave the sunscreen at home (it is suggested you swim with a shirt on instead). Take a three-hour walk up the gorge to see Oyster Bay pines and the largest remaining dry eucalypt forest in Tasmania. If you are desperate to stay here, there are some fairly ordinary campsites about five minutes walk from the car, within hearing of lowing cattle.
