The "Serengeti" of Tasmania

From Beauty Point we travelled west through the forests on a very bad and steep gravel road to camp at Bakers Point in the Narawntapu National Park.
Dubbed the "Serengeti of Tasmania", Narawntapu National Park (formerly known as Asbestos Range National Park) is supposed to be one of the best places in Tasmania to view wildlife. The park boasts a rich array of easily observed animals that come out in the evening to graze on the grasslands. Some of the animals that we saw included the Forester kangaroo, Bennetts wallaby, Tasmanian pademelon, Common possum and Tiger snake.
Bakers Point is on the shores of Port Sorell, a big tidal inlet fed by the Franklin Rivulet. The campsite is nice and quiet with lots of sea birds nesting on the shores of the port. The bird hide at the lagoon allows you to view many water birds.
From here we travelled south to Mole Creek Karst National Park to explore the Walls of Jerusalem.
