Mount Field National Park

The lawns near the Mount Field National Park entrance are a favourite haunt of Bennett’s wallabies and Tasmanian pademelons. Brushtail and ringtail possums are common, along with southern brown and eastern barred bandicoots and long-nosed potoroos. Wombats and echidnas are often seen on the open moors, and if you sit quietly by Lake Dobson you might see platypus. There are six bat species and over 80 bird species, including yellow-tailed black cockatoos in the eucalypt forests, superb lyrebirds in the rainforest and wedge-tailed eagles at higher altitudes.
