Ben Lomond: 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.

Avoca Museum and Information Centre


The Avoca Museum and Information Centre (AMIC) in the 106 year old heritage listed building promotes the beautiful Fingal Valley region.
The old Avoca State School opened in 1908 at a cost of 348 pounds, and in 1929 73 pupils were enrolled. Prime Minister Joe Lyons visited the school in 1936, the year the wireless set and electric power were installed. The CWA used the old building when a new school was built in 1951. The building suffered years of neglect until in 2010 Greater Esk Tourism successfully obtained $193,000 from the Urban Renewal and Heritage Fund, TCF, FRRR, Arts Tasmania and other bodies to fund the restoration, with volunteers completing the work prior to opening on Australia Day 2012.
The AMIC Committee restored the Cenotaph and recommenced Anzac Day services in 2013. New gym equipment, picnic tables and soldiers' memorial trees have enhanced Boucher Park.
AMIC includes the old school atmosphere, a current 'Sporting History of the Avoca District' exhibition, visitor information and local craft sales. The Fingal Valley has stunning scenery, mountain climbs, bush walks, waterfalls and the world's tallest white gums at Evercreech Forest Reserve.
