DOUGLAS APSLEY

North East Tasmania

 

The Douglas River/Apsley Gorge National Park is one of Tasmania's newest.  There is a three day walk stretching the length of the park from Chain of Lagoons in the north to Bicheno in the south - the Leaberra Track.  A short visit to the southern end of the park is worth the trip.

 

Right - Apsley Gorge

 

"Swimming Hole" near the car park at the southern end of the  Apsley Gorge.

Access is just a short drive from directly opposite the Bicheno Golf Course north of the town.  During summer the river flow usually drops to a trickle. The water can become mild and is very popular swimming venue during hot summer days.  Only a short walk from the car park.

A 3 day walk commences from the northern end of the park.  Consult one of the many books on walks in Tasmania.

The falls opposite are about an hours walk from the car park at the southern end of the National Park. The first 20 minutes is a fairly strenuous uphill walk. The falls are about 100 metres from where the track enters the gorge just past the rock cliff behind the falls to the right.

The return trip can be by rock hopping back down the river.
