Upper Esk: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Ben Lomond National Park


Ben Lomond National Park is an alpine plateau in northern Tasmania over 1500 metres high and visible from much of Tasmania's north. The park is the main downhill skiing field in Tasmania and a magnet for adventure seekers.
Bennet's wallabies and wombats are common sights in the park and are seen regularly in the ski village during summer and winter.
Drive to the summit and experience striking mountaintop features including dolerite columns and scree slopes.
Rock climbing, alpine walking, cross-country and downhill skiing are the highlights of this national park.
Jacobs Ladder, a steep and narrow section of road on the way up the mountain, will leave a lasting memory and demands great care, especially in winter conditions when chains should be carried. A ranger station at the foot of the mountain can advise on road conditions during winter.
Ben Lomond National Park is a one-hour and 40-minute drive east of Launceston.

Evercreech Forest Reserve


Evercreech Forest Reserve is a beautiful natural reserve located in Northern Tasmania.
Enjoy a picnic or barbecue in the shady canopy of the world's tallest white gums (over 90 metres high) and explore the short bushland walking tracks through forest and alongside the headwaters of the South Esk River.
Nearby are the Mathinna Falls Forest Reserve and the Griffin Camping Area. These north-east forest reserves are attractive spots to break your journey on the A4 between the Midland Highway and the east coast. To reach them, turn left on the B43 at Fingal towards Mathinna. An interesting alternative route continues beyond Mathinna, taking gravel roads through the Mt Victoria Forest Reserve to reach the rich north-east farmlands at Ringarooma.
