Mount William National Park

Mount William National Park was originally created to protect Forester kangaroos, which are Tasmania’s version of the eastern grey; take a slow drive along Forester Kangaroo Drive at dawn or dusk, when they will most likely be seen feeding on grass. Other park residents include pademelons, wombats, spotted-tailed and eastern quolls and the New Holland mouse. Tasmanian devils were once present in large numbers, but have succumbed in recent years to a rare type of cancer. From Eddystone Point, watch for seabirds and whales migrating during the wintertime.
