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.
