Mount William National Park

Tasmania's remote north-east coast

sunny 27 °C

We left the Bay of Fires after a delightful stay on the beach for 5 days. We travelled back to St. Helens to fill up the water tanks in the Quantum and to buy some provisions for the next stretch of bush camping. We headed north through the state forest on a decent gravel road to Musselroe Bay.

Mount William National Park on Tasmania's far north-east coast is remote with undulating grasslands, large dunes, sweeping white beaches and an ocean varying from azure in the shallows to bright blue in deeper waters. The granite boulders in the surf zone are home to many sea birds like cormorants, terns and pelicans. We camped at Top Camp which is an oceanfront campsite on the beach between Musselroe Bay and Cape Naturaliste. Although it was a lovely spot the March (horse) flies and the ants were annoying and we cut our stay short to only two days.

From here we travelled to Launceston, Tasmania's second largest city.
