This campsite is located in Narawntapu National Park

Within this long coastal park - the first in Tasmania to adopt its Aboriginal name - there are wide beaches, lagoons packed with birdlife, open plains crowded with animals and an excellent information centre. The abundance of wildlife to be seen here at dusk is remarkable, with dozens of wallabies and wombats coming out to feed each evening. It is also significant for its human history, with evidence that people have lived here for perhaps 30 000 years. Most camping areas in the park have fireplaces with some firewood supplied, although gas/fuel stoves are recommended. Narawntapu is 40 km east of Devonport via the B71, or 85 km north of Launceston via the West Tamar Hwy (A7).
